The hamlet of Wassaic derives its name from the Native American word washaic, meaning "land of difficult access." Since 2008, the Wassaic Project has transformed the former Maxxon Mills property into an annual summer art, dance, film, and music festival. This year's two-day event (August 11 to 12) features Friday night dance performances by Davalois Fearon, Movement of the People Dance Company, Branfman & Strimpel / BS Movement and more troupes on Saturday. The festival culminates with live music at the Lantern by Upstate Rubdown, Madaila, and Midnight Magic. The Wassaic Project August Festival events will be held August 11 at 6:30pm until August 12 at 11pm. There is a $10 cover charge to get into The Lantern on August 12. Wassaicproject.org
