Cultural Arts Coalition board members and co-producers of the event are Paul Toscano President of the Hudson Valley Blues Society; Margaret Carey of HamletHub & Master It Media; and Judy Marano, Owner of EA Test Prep and President of the Cultural Arts Coalition.
“Last year’s music had patrons dancing on the lawn and singing along to some fantastic bands” explains Judy Marano, Cultural Arts Coalition President, “We are partnering with local businesses and organizations to provide even more activities while offering a free concert that is open to anyone. Our plan is to provide amazing events year round when the Old Town Hall Theater restoration is complete.”
“You’ll be able to #GetTheFunkOut with non-stop music,” exclaims co-producer, Paul Toscano. Bands include Riiza, Blue Alien Mystic, Special Sauce, Fishkill George & TFM, and The Libertine Project with sound provided by K Bays Sound Concepts. Between sets, solo artists Brian Dallas Field, Brian Larney, David Powers, Greg Jacquin and David Kraii will provide acoustic music.
Beer, wine and cider will be available for purchase. Wells Park rules state that no outside alcohol, glass or dogs (with the exception of service animals) are allowed in the park. Crafters, artists, artisans, local businesses and organizations will enrich your experience by offering items for purchase and information on local services. In addition, attendees are encouraged to participate in the Cultural Arts Coalition 50/50 Raffle, which will benefit the restoration of the Old Town Hall Theater.
“Last year’s Brewster Music Festival had over 1,000 attendees from as far as southern New Jersey,” explains co-producer and public relations director, Margaret Carey, “Come early because we anticipate a much bigger crowd this year due to the popularity of the event, the increase in the number of performers, and the longer length of the event.” Free parking is available at the Tri-State Lot at Park Street and Morningthorpe Ave. Take the train to the Brewster Train Station. Putnam County will provide free trolley shuttle service at both of these locations to Wells Park.
