“Rockin’ the Green” at Hudson Valley Exposition: Food, Art and Music

Jul 29, 2016 05:45PM

The annual Hudson Valley Exposition will return to Peekskill Riverfront Green from 1 to 10 p.m., August 6, with interactive kids’ activities, food and beverages, an array of local holistic and wellness providers who will educate and demonstrate, and a six-hour music festival, “Rockin’ the Green.” Admission is a suggested $10 donation per adult.

“We want to showcase everything that makes the Hudson Valley so special: food, art, music, businesses, history and more. The best part is that we can feature everything against the backdrop of the majestic Hudson River—it doesn’t get any better than that,” says Deb Milone, exposition director and the executive director of the Hudson Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Hosted by radio personality Kacey Morabito of WHUD, the main stage will include performances by Christine Ohlman (the Beehive Queen from Saturday Night Live) & Rebel Montez; Professor Louie & the Crowmatix with the Woodstock Horns; a tribute to the Eagles and Glenn Frey by the Best of the Eagles; and Broadway’s Rock of Ages Band with the original Broadway cast members.

“The exposition promotes the benefits and bounty of living, working and playing in the Hudson Valley, with a focus on art, music, trendy businesses, holistic health and wellness, and energy and technology, along with the best of the area’s food, craft beer and wines,” Milone says.

Most activities are free, but some may require a fee. For more information, visit HVExposition.com.
