Songwriters Celebrate Pete Seeger's 100th on Make Music Day at Kingsland Bay State Park


Grab your picnic baskets and your favorite acoustic instrument and come out to Kingsland Bay Park in Ferrisburgh on June 21 for Make Music Day and a celebration of Pete Seeger’s 100th birthday!

From noon ’til sunset, musicians can play along porches and in the main dining hall. Musicians can also form song circles for particular styles of music, such as blues and bluegrass, with group leaders facilitating each group so everyone gets to participate. Group leaders include many of Pete Seeger’s long time friends Rick & Donna Nestler, Mel & Vinnie, Dan & Faith, Rik Palieri along with many of the Hinesburg Song Farmers club singers with Barry King and more! At 5 PM a sing-a-long circle will form in honor of Pete Seeger’s 100th birthday.

Everyone is welcome, and don’t forget to bring a picnic basket and a bathing suit too! Parking is available just after the park’s main gate.

Kingsland Bay State Park is located at 787 Kingsland Bay State Park Road in Ferrisburgh.
