Decks and Docks on the Esopus

Decks and Docks events have become a fun part of the Saugerties busy event schedule.  Participants come by kayak, rowboat, auto, bike, and on foot to explore the Esopus Creek and Esopus Bend Nature Preserve.


Visitors are welcomed to share their decks, docks, lawns, and patios with enthusiasm and generous offerings of food and drink.  One participant, looking forward to future events, summed it up: ". . . a splendid introduction to the unexpected beauties of some watery corners of Saugerties, and the opportunity to make some fascinating new friends."


Come on out, in June (see the Calendar for specifics/rain date), to show your support for the Esopus Creek Conservancy (ECC).  Come by boat, come by car, ride your bike, walk or hike . . . come delight in the creek and the flora, fauna, and neighbors who call it home.


By popular demand, last year's concert creek-side at Esopus Bend Nature Preserve will be repeated for the added enjoyment of "Decks and Docks" visitors.


When purchased in advance, the tickets for Decks and Docks are $20 for individuals and $50 for a family.  When they are bought the day of the event, they are $30 for individuals and $65 for a family.


Purchase advance tickets in Saugerties at Hudson Valley Dessert Company, Smith Hardware, Partition Street Wine Shop, or Village Apothecary.  Or send check to Esopus Creek Conservancy, P.O. Box 589, Saugerties, NY  12477
