Sited around and within the former Maxon Mills building on the easternmost edge of Dutchess County, the Wassaic Project is an arts organization focused on innovative programming and community building. It’s also the home of the yearly, town-wide Wassaic Summer Festival, which makes its third appearance starting this Friday to once again bring music, art, dance, and film to the hamlet.

This year’s festival promises live music by more than 15 bands, dance performances, short and feature film screenings, local food, and the Wassaic Project’s eighth annual summer exhibition, Deep End, which will bring together works by over 65 artists. Participants are encouraged to come for the day or stay the weekend, and the programming is “cutting-edge yet family friendly.”

Here’s a teaser for last year’s festival:



The Wassaic Summer Festival will take place July 31 through August 2 in Wassaic, New York. Weekend passes are $20. For a schedule and more information, visit http://wassaicproject.org/festival/about/#1.
