The Montauk Historical Society presents the inaugural Great Eastern Music Festival at the world-famous Montauk Lighthouse, located at the easternmost tip of Long Island. The idyllic setting provides 360 degree views of Block Island, the Atlantic Ocean and beyond. The festival will feature an eclectic mix of Americana, Roots, and Bluegrass music, presented on two stages, with craft food + beverage, vendors and more. Proceeds from the event will fund ongoing maintenance of the Lighthouse and the maintenance of the retaining wall on the ocean side.
The Montauk Lighthouse was built from 1792-1796 and commissioned by George Washington in 1797. The Lighthouse Committee of the Montauk Historical Society is dedicated to the protection, preservation and educational development of this national historic site. Through programs, exhibits, publications and special events, the story of this site will be conveyed to the public.
