WASSAIC, N.Y. -- The free Wassaic Project Summer Festival begins this Friday, with a wide variety of workshops, exhibits, films and more.

This annual celebration of "art, music, dance and community" will feature more than 100 artists, 25 bands, film screenings, dance performances and more, organizers note. "Housed in the unique buildings and property of the Wassaic Project, the festival escapes the white walls of traditional art spaces."

The festival hours are Friday from 5-11 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

You can view the full festival schedule here.

The Sunday festival programming in particular is geared toward kids and families. Activities will include art workshops, dance lessons, family-friendly films, field games, artist-led workshops and Grammy-Award-winner Dan Zanes.

You can view that schedule here.

There is limited on-site parking, at 32 Nelson Rd. It costs $40 per car, with no overnight parking.

Off-site parking is free, during the day and overnight. It's at at 383 Old Route 22. Regular shuttles will run between from there to the festival grounds, on Friday from 5-11 p.m., Saturday from noon to 11 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

You can also take the Metro-North Harlem line, to the Wassaic station. It's a 10-minute walk, south on Route 22, or there will be a free shuttle from the train station to the festival grounds.

The festival is at the Maxon Mills, 37 Furnace Bank Rd., in Wassaic.
