Saturday: First Annual Nashkill Festival!

Over the years, Peekskill has been home to many great festivals. This year we get to add another fest to that long list; and it looks to be an excellent addition:

“Ten years ago, I left Kentucky for Broadway,” says event producer and vocalist Joni Blondell. “This is an opportunity to bring a little of the Kentucky front porch bluegrass and country music heritage for which I am home sick for to Peekskill. We have an incredible line up of performers. We hope to make this an annual event.”

Saturday, May 20
3pm – Midnight
Near Peekskill Riverfront Green:
Railroad Avenue, in front of Buns-N-Bourbon

What’s Up Peekskill? Get outside, the weather’s fine!

Hey P-Rockers,  winter is finally not coming! What weather! And about time, too! The heat shall pass and we’ll have a bangin’ weather weekend for all the great stuff going on. There’s a music festival at the waterfront y’all should check out, as well as the usual fun gigs downtown, including screenings of Charlotte’s Web at the Paramount. Oh, Wilbur! So come out this weekend and get your Rock on!
