The fourth annual Grateful Fest, the popular outdoor Grateful Dead tribute-band concert, will be held Sunday, September 27, 2015, from 12:00 to 6:30 p.m. on the Great Lawn, west of the Vanderbilt Mansion, overlooking Northport Bay and Long Island Sound.
Proceeds from this event benefit Vanderbilt Museum education programs. (Rain date: October 4).
Thirty artists will paint to live music by Half Step, The Electrix, Reckoning and Unbroken Chain. Concert-goers bring beach chairs, blankets and picnic lunches. Tickets: adults $25 on-line, $35 at door; children 5–15 $10 on-line or at door; children under 5 free.
Rich Rivkin – who produces the event and the annual Woodstock Revival concert – says “Grateful Fest is where the vibe attracts the tribe! Your eyes and ears will thank your brain.”
