In an exciting, first-time collaboration, Storm King Art Center is partnering with Orange County’s (NY) Ferry Godmother Productions to present a fun-filled day of art and music.

In addition to the musical performances, a live, teaching band will lead educational workshops throughout the day at the festival’s main ‘marquee’ tent.
