We haven’t ventured up to Wassaic, a Dutchess County hamlet close to the Connecticut border. But a friend and reader alerted us to a music and art festival there at the Wassaic Project. Here’s the skinny: “The Wassaic Project Summer Festival is a FREE, annual, multi-disciplinary celebration of art, music, and community in the hamlet of Wassaic, NY. 2011 will feature over 100 artists, 23 bands, poetry readings, dance performances, film screenings, and much more. August 5th-7th, 2011. Art Reception in Maxon Mills, Saturday 5pm-7pm.” Coincidentally, I swear, my little bro’s band is playing at 8PM on Saturday!
One of the cool things about Wassaic, besides this art collective, is that it’s serviced by Metro North. Which means we’ll be checking out real estate there soon!
