Nothing says summer like a waterfront concert—and if you're from southern Dutchess County, Beacon Riverfest is the place to be.

On June 29, Beacon Riverfest brings more musicians than ever to Riverfront Park. Twelve acts will perform on three stages from 12pm to 8pm, allowing concert goers to enjoy their favorite music in the hot sun of the afternoon all the way until the cool summer night.

Brooklyn's top Peruvian music combo, Chicha Libre, will pack Latin rhythms, surf, and psychedelic pop into one exciting set, and Beacon-based band the Costellos will add some local flare. Tracy Bonham and Friends, Mamie Minch and Her Business, Matuto, Hollis Brown, Higher Animals, the Erin Hobson Compact, Pontoon, Krewe De La Rue, Van Hayride, and Tiki Daddy will join them for a day filled with folk, indie, rock, and more.

There will be food from local vendors such as the Beacon Natural Market and Tito Santana Taqueria and crafts for kids.

Admission is free, so bring the whole family—and then some!
