HUDSON RIVER
FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS
Festival Dates: June 1-2, 2013
Location: Pierson Park, Tarrytown, NY,
Number of artists: 100
SHOW DESCRIPTION:
The Hudson River Festival of the Arts returns to Tarrytown, NY. The festival will be held at the newly renovated Pierson Park on the beautiful Riverwalk winding along the eastern shore of the Hudson River. The Metro North Commuter Rail Service has a major metro hub within a few minutes walk of the show site. The Metro offers easy access to the event directly from Manhattan and Grand Central Station. The downtown district of Tarrytown is less than 0.5 miles from the festival location. This area of New York supports a strong community of art patrons. Within a 20-mile radius of Tarrytown are the cities of Greenwich, CT, Armonk, NY and Scarsdale, NY (Westchester Festival of the Arts). Westchester County is the second wealthiest county in New York and 12th wealthiest nationwide. In 2004 Westchester County embarked on the Hudson Riverwalk project to convert a 50-mile stretch of the Hudson River waterfront from primarily industrial facilities to a mixed-use residential, retail, and recreational properties and provide public access between New York City and Putnam County. This transformation is most notable in Tarrytown. Adjoining Pierson Park is Hudson Harbor with elegant townhouses and condominiums, a yacht club and marina.
SYNOPSIS:
Three years ago we held an event on the grounds of Pierson Park in early October prior to the initiation of the renovations. It was a smaller boutique-style show. At that time we were not collecting sales information from the artists. However, we can say that that based on discussions with artists after the event it was apparent many had good sales, indicating the festival holds great promise as it returns to the newly-renovated park in June of 2013.
