The third annual Riverfest boasts a diverse, high-energy line-up, including the swee, summery sounds of Bing Ji Ling, The Figgs (Graham Parker's backing band), Schwervon!, Beacon's own surf trio The Octomen, and M Shanghai String Band, "a modern-day medicine show according to Tommy Ramone. Vendors will be onsite serving food—from pulled pork to paletas. Handicraft artists will sell original work and handmade jewelry. Free admission. June 30, noon to dark.
