Hudson Day ! September 4th 2021
The Town of Hudson presents “Hudson Day”
Free activities on Saturday, September 4 to include live music on six stages, arts & culture, family fun, and more
HUDSON, QUEBEC – Main Road will be alive with music, merchants, art, culture, and family activities on Saturday, September 4, 2021 for Hudson Day, a celebration of community spirit and resilience after an exceptionally challenging year.
According to Glen Robinson, the event coordinator for the Town of Hudson, the event is a testament to Hudson’s artists, entrepreneurs, and citizens.
“Hudson Day is a showcase of all that this town has to offer,” Robinson said. “We reached out to our local organizations and businesses, and they have stepped up in a big way. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
The soundtrack for the day will feature 28 free musical performances on six stages spread throughout the village core, to encourage visitors to wander up and down the new sidewalks and explore the boutiques, restaurants, bars, arts & culture activities, and parks.
The cherry on top is a free closing show at 7 p.m. by Montreal’s favourite hard-rocking hippies The Damn Truth — a band that has sold out shows internationally and opened for the likes of Z.Z. Top, The Sheepdogs, and Styx. Tickets to the show are free but must be reserved online in advance at https://bit.ly/DamnTruthTickets, as capacity is limited. The concert will be under the big top at the Hudson Music Festival stage at the corner of Selkirk & Main. Opening acts will include the blues duo Clarksdale Moan at 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., and up-and-coming Hudson singer-songwriter duo NYALA at 4 p.m.
Live music will also be featured at several Hudson businesses: John McGale (of the blues-rock band Offenbach) will perform from 3-7 p.m. at Cameron Public House, folk-roots singer Stewart Burrows at le Verger de Hudson from 1-4 p.m., and Flamenco guitarist Lucien Lavoie at Microbrasserie Cardinal from 6:30-9 p.m.
