The events will be taking place on the top of the hill at the Mill Valley site of the park. Guests must be able to endure a 10 minute walk uphill to the festival site.
Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and small coolers. There will be a food booth, as well as a beer and wine garden on-site.
Many fans of the sculpture park fondly remember previous musical events at the park, including when 6,000 fans saw 10,000 Maniacs play a benefit concert. The Band also played a show at the park in the mid-1990s. And “The Canadian Invasion” in 1994 featured an impressive collection of Canadian bands, including Lowest of the Low, 54-40 and Blue Rodeo.
The Griffis Sculpture Park is owned and operated by the Ashford Hollow Foundation, which also owns the Essex Arts Center in Buffalo, NY. The mission of the Ashford Hollow Foundation is to promote the visual and performing arts as well as construct a dynamic relationship between the arts and education in Western New York to better its young people and the greater community.
