A new partnership celebrates the Hudson Valley

We shared the details here recently about the next edition of Crafts at Lyndhurst, which will be held Sept. 16 to 18 in Tarrytown.

For more than 30 years, Artrider Productions has been bringing hundreds of American artists and craftspeople to the area twice a year to showcase and sell their one-of-a-kind works.

Now, we’ve just heard, the event is teaming up with Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. The partnership is designed to highlight the organizations’ joint commitment to the Hudson Valley’s culture and environment, while also raising funds for the Clearwater and Lyndhurst.

As part of the collaboration, a special raffle at the crafts event will offer the chance to win a sail on the sloop, tickets to next year’s Clearwater Festival and more.

Both organizations have a long history of supporting craftsmanship, artistry and culture of the region.

Pete Seeger, the late – and legendary – musician, environmentalist and activist, founded the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater in 1966. Today, Seeger’s work is continued through the organization’s dedication to environmental education.

Since its start, Crafts at Lyndhurst has raised nearly $4 million dollars for the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
