The Drum Boogie Festival®, produced by the Woodstock Chimes Fund, the charitable arm of Woodstock Chimes®, is spear-headed by Grammy Award winner Garry Kvistad, founder/owner of Woodstock Chimes and Executive Director of the Drum Boogie Festival. Through this FREE, one-day, family–oriented multi-cultural arts and educational event, they hope to promote an exchange of world culture through the diversity of rhythm, dance and song that is offered and celebrated during the festival.

Renowned musicians perform side-by-side with local professional artists on two stages to facilitate quick changes between performances. This year’s lineup includes musicians such as Jack DeJohnette, NEXUS, The Big Takeover, the North/South Indian Music Project, Beatbox House, NYU Steel Band, African Drummers, Dancers and more!

You don’t have to love drums to LOVE DRUM BOOGIE. This FREE festival has a variety of food trucks on site to serve your hunger needs. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and stay for the day.

The 2017 Drum Boogie Festival helps support Family of Woodstock and the Hudson Valley shelter programs.

The Drum Boogie is made possible by the generosity of the Woodstock Chimes Fund, Bread Alone and Assemblyperson Kevin Cahill.

The Woodstock Chimes Fund was established in 1986 by Diane & Garry Kvistad, owners of Woodstock Percussion, Inc., to support the community in the Arts, and in Food and Shelter Programs. We believe that a community can be judged by how it values the Arts and the way in which its members respond to those in need. We believe that we have a responsibility as a corporate citizen to give back to the community, which has helped make our success possible.
