RED BANK, NJ: Due to the pandemic, this year's New Jersey Clearwater Festival will be held virtually on their website on September 26 and 27 with a mix of music and environmental information.

The Clearwater Festival was formed in the mid-1970s by Bob Killian and inspired by activist and folk singer Pete Seeger to advocate for the environment.

The first Festival was held on Sandy Hook in 1975, then moved to Asbury Park 2001 for a dozen years.  Recent Festivals have been in Long Branch, Brookdale Community College, and debuted at Marine Park in Red Bank last year.

"We are working on a great line-up of performers and environmental messages to deliver a unique virtual experience " said Ed Dlugosz, President of NJFC. We could all use some feel good music and some do-good actions to help protect Mother Earth and it will all be safely accessible from home.  We hope to be back live on the Navesink River in Red Bank next year!"

The cost of holding our Festival has skyrocketed--insurance, tents and stages, venue and police fees, transportation, and other logistics costs.  The last few years our all-volunteer staff has had to make difficult decisions, including whether we continue holding the Fest.   NJFC is a 501C3 Charitable Organization.

Help them keep it going!
