On Saturday, September 28 from noon until six, rain or shine, BMW of the Hudson Valley will present "Beacon ROCKTOBERFEST," a day of outdoor music wrapping up The Rutigliano Group's free public programming for the City of Beacon's Centennial year, marking one hundred years since the villages of Mattawan and Fishkill Landing joined to become the city. The event will be held in the parking lot of the DMV building on 223 Main Street, and will feature a broad range of local professional music artists in folk, jazz, rock and metal, with a beer tent area for patrons to celebrate the season while enjoying the variety of musical offerings.
"We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Beacon than once again presenting the amazing musical artists who play the world over but call our city home," says Robert Rutigliano, President of The Rutigliano Group. "Beacon has more than our fair share of high-quality original professional musical talent which continues to shape the music scene in the Hudson Valley and beyond, and we are delighted to bring them together one final time to showcase Beacon's world-class musical art past and point to its bright future. From rich and intricate folk songs to 'melt your face off' metal, if you enjoy great live music, this day will have that special offering to put you in your happy box."
