The Hope Rocks Festival was created to provide a safe, accepting music, art and activity festival experience while illuminating the darkness of addiction and mental health issues in order to empower communities in a counter assault on this epidemic of hopelessness and death.
We believe we are the first festival in the nation and perhaps, the world, to address these issues head on. Our mission continues as we are continually expanding into events and programs which have been prompted by the success of this festival.
A critical component in our objective is empowerment and understanding. This is accomplished through the involvement of volunteers committed to facing these issues while demonstrating the power of hope. Everyone involved in the Hope Rocks movement is a volunteer.
We would love to have you part of this special event. The festival takes place at the Cantine Veteran's Memorial Complex in Saugerties, NY.
