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:
