RED BANK, NJ – The free NJ Clearwater Festival is coming back from the pandemic with live music on the banks of the Navesink River in Red Bank on August 6 and 7 complete with music, environmental information, food, and free sailboat rides.“We are thrilled to be making our live comeback at Riverside Gardens Park” said NJFC President Ed Dlugosz, noting that the 2020 and 2021 Festivals were virtual on the non-profit group’s website. “It’s a beautiful spot to celebrate our environment with music, song, and an exhilarating, wind-in-your-hair sail on the Navesink. And be sure to bring a chair or blanket.”
