Joining its cross-Hudson counterpart Kingston, Poughkeepsie will play host to its own O+ Festival come August 5, 2017 and take place on the block of Main Street between Academy and Market streets. According to the official announcement, “participating visual artists and musicians will receive complimentary health and wellness care from art-loving volunteer providers.” The creative arts festival made the official announcement over the weekend, and you can read more details about the Poughkeepsie O+ Festival on opositivefestival.org/poughkeepsie.
