LINCROFT, NJ - The 42nd Annual Clearwater Festival, New Jersey's oldest and largest music and environmental festival, will be on the lawn at Larrison Hall Commons at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, September 9 and 10.
“Now more than ever citizens need information about ways to protect the environment, in their daily lives and to engage in public discussion of environmental policy, locally and nationally.” said Chrissie Goedkoop, President of New Jersey Friends of Clearwater. “Our goal is to provide that information along with great music and traditional summer fun.”
This free family-friendly event combines information on protecting the environment with live music performed by top-rated performers in a variety of styles from rock and soul to jazz, folk and blues on three stages. Environmental groups will be there with exhibits and information as well as food, crafts, and a special children's area. Bring a blanket or a chair.
Festival will feature musical performances by The Wag, The Cobra Brothers, Poppa John Bug, JT & Bleeders, The O’Neill & Martin Band, Dune Grass, George Wirth, Kevin John Allen, Green Earth Troubadour, The Jody Joseph Band, Alejandro Ataucusi, Rockit, Keith Monacchio, Dan Tove, Mary McCrink, Avery Mandeville, Lynn Adams Davis, Arlan Feiles & The Broken Hearted, and Dawg Whistler, featuring Vinny ‘Mad Dog’ Lopez and Paul Whistler.
