Third Annual Upper Landing Park Community Day Celebration Saturday August 6 - 11am-4pm! FREE!

POUGHKEEPSIE, NY—The Bardavon in association with the Dyson Foundation will present the third Upper Landing Park Community Celebration on Saturday, August 6th.
The free public event will be held from 11 am until 4 p.m. and will be held rain or shine.

The Upper Landing Park Community Celebration will feature a rich array of family-friendly entertainment and activities including the always popular Sonando salsa band, the Mexican music and dance of Jarana Beat, Arm of the Sea Theater, POOK (Percussion Orchestra of Kingston), Bindlestiff Family Circus, Kim & Reggie Harris and more.

There will be many children’s activities including Two by Two Petting Zoo, and lots of affordable food options.

Because there is limited parking along Water Street in the City of Poughkeepsie and no dedicated parking at the Upper Landing Park, those wishing to attend are encouraged to walk to the event from nearby neighborhoods or utilize public transit options. Free parking will be available at the Metro North and Waryas Park parking lots.

In addition to serving as a pleasant, free public park located along Water Street to the north of the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum, Upper Landing Park also provides access to The Walkway’s new waterfront elevator. Upper Landing Park is located at 83 North Water Street in Poughkeepsie.
