July 25. What with the recent advent of clubs like Quinn's, the Town Crier, and the Dogwood, as well as last month's Beacon Riverfest, it's clear that Pete Seeger's hallowed hometown is building on his musical legacy. Now add to that the inaugural Beacon Jazz Festival, which debuts late this month at the city's recently christened Pete and Toshi Seeger Riverfront Park. Along with free wine and cider tastings via local artisans and craft beer and food from local breweries and eateries, the festival will present music from Sun of Goldfinger (featuring Tim Berne, David Torn, and Ches Smith), the Karl Berger/Ingrid Sertso Quartet, George Coleman Jr.'s Rivington Project, the International Brass and Membrane Corps, Mike Dopazo and the HV All-Stars, and DJ Grady Salter. Noon. $45 ($35 in advance), $65 VIP. Beacon. (845) 337-1342; Beaconjazz.com
