Brewster is a town in southeast Putnam County incorporated in 1894. It gets its name from Walter Brewster, who invited the New York and Harlem Railroad to build a depot on his property.

Famous singer Laura Ann Branigan was born in Brewster. Her platinum-certified 1982 single “Gloria,” stayed on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for 36 weeks. It also peaked at number 2, a record for a female artist, and number one in Australia and Canada.

The free outdoor concert series will feature a lot of different acts. Fundraising to begin the festival started in 2021, and different community businesses helped with it. Those attending are told to bring lawn chairs, blankets, picnic dinners, cold beverages, etc. It will take place at the gazebo at the corner of Railroad and Morningthorpe Avenues in Brewster.
