Join us for the second-annual Chronogram Block Party! Last year, 3,500 people helped us celebrate 20 years of Chronogram with our first bash. The free, family-friendly event is now a yearly opportunity for Chronogram readers to get together and enjoy some music, fun, food and drink, and community in front of the magazine's offices in the historic Stockade District in Uptown Kingston.
Procession down Wall Street with the Rosendale Improvement Association Brass Band & Social Club
The band is comprised of professional and amateur musicians who make music together with instruments of all shapes and sizes.
The Hudson Valley "kindie" duo of Tim Sutton and Matt Senzatimore play fun, upbeat tunes the whole family can enjoy.
Breakfast in Fur
These New Paltz psychedelic folk-rockers channel equal parts Sigur Ros and the Beach Boys via ethereal harmonies.
This three-piece indie outfit crafts tight melodies that recall sounds from The Kinks to Animal Collective.
Groove to some bumping bass and slick riffs with this horn-heavy Brooklyn-based Afro-Funk collective.
Fronted by actor Justin Rice and OkCupid cofounder Christian Rudder, these Kingston-based pop-rockers kick off their "Lights Out" tour at the Block Party. Check out our chat with Rice.
Bindlestiff Family Cirkus
Join members of the cirkus for some Vaudevillian, old-timey circus entertainment: clowning, unicycling, fire-eating, and more!
Catskill Art & Office Supply DIY Art Tent
Try your hand at some sidewalk art, sport a few temporary tattoos, grab a small canvas to paint and bring home, and design your very own Chronogram cover. And before you call it a night, unroll our giant scroll and leave us a message.
Aim for the target to benefit Angel Food East, a nonprofit organization that serves daily, hot meals to Ulster County residents living with HIV and AIDS.
