Hillsdales Beechwood Park Summer Concert Schedule

Hillsdales Beechwood Park Summer Concert Schedule

The Hillsdale Summer Concert Series is almost over but there is a special treat coming up on Tuesday August 5th at 8:00 PM. Pete Seeger will be joined by his grandson Tao Rodriguez-Seeger and his longtime friend blues man Guy Davis for a sing-a-long get together. Bring along your blankets and chairs for a remarkable evening with this legendary performer from the lower Hudson Valley.   

This will be a truly special concert as Pete Seeger is preparing to release a 32 track album of “new takes on old favorites” titled “At 89”.    His age?  Seems like yesterday we were singing along to such songs as Turn, Turn, Turn, Where Have All the Flowers Gone & If I Had a Hammer. 

Beechwood Park in Hillsdale NJ is a special place for me personally as I {Bob}, grew up across the street from it and saw it’s many transitions through the years.   The park has become a wonderful family orientated playground, baseball, soccer field under the lights located just west of the stage area.  I can remember when this facility was being built and playing in the woods before it became what it is today.  I went to Camp Hildaca in the 60’s in Beechwood Park and spent many summers having fun.  Oh, am I giving away my age here?  I’ve even gotten to play on this very stage many years ago.  I had a band and we just went in there before the days when you needed permits and such and just set up with a generator behind the stage.  Fun stuff! Here is a couple of old pictures of us from back then.  Not the best shots but you get the idea.

Of course things change as time goes by but the general feel of Beechwood Park is still the same.

The Free Beechwood Park Concert Series is held every summer from July through the begining of August. All concerts start at 8:00PM. It is located on the eastern side of Hillsdale Avenue in Hillsdale. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved to the Pascack Valley High School auditorium at 200 Piermont Road in Hillsdale

This should be a very enteraining concert/sing along so if you do plan on attending be prepared to sing for what promises to be a very memorable evening.   Hope to see you there!
