The Peekskill Coffee House has a monthly open mic run by the ineffable Andy Rice. It is a load of fun and I encourage all you musicians and music lovers to stop by and take in a little local musical color. This month’s open mic happens on August 16th from 7-9pm. See you there!
Saturday, August 23, 2014 – 12:00pm – 6:00pm
Sunday, August 24, 2014 – 12:00pm – 6:00pm

Emerald City is coming to Peekskill! Local vendors and artists will take part in the event which will be geared towards themes related to the story such as “Follow Your Dreams Over the Rainbow” and “Believe in Yourself.” The festivities will be from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. All patrons are welcome to come in costume. The commemoration is in honor of L. Frank Baum who was enrolled at the Peekskill Military Academy and authored the beloved Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Baum once said “Time is given to us to be happy and for no other reason.” What better way to enjoy your day then with your family and friends?
It’s still a couple of weeks away, but for an event like The Dutchess County Fair, you’ll want to plan ahead! August 19-24 will come fast.
Poster: “Poverty and Civil Rights 50 Years Later.” Meeting on August 8, 2014, 6:30 p.m., at the Community Room, City of Peekskill Neighborhood Center, 4 Nelson Ave. Organized by Community Voices Heard.
