Support the continued preservation of the circa-1869 Saugerties Lighthouse at the 19th annual Between the Tides Festival on Sunday, August 17 from 2 to 7 p.m. The event is scheduled “between the tides” so that the half-mile trail to the Lighthouse is passable throughout the event. It’s a family-friendly, all-ages festival that includes live music and local food and drinks.

The interior of the Lighthouse is open for tours during the festival instead of the usual tour schedule on this day. No pets are allowed. Tickets cost $25 with advance purchase or $30 for adults and $25 for seniors on the day of the event. Children under age 12 are admitted free.

The Saugerties Lighthouse is located at 168 Lighthouse Drive in Saugerties. For more information, call (845) 247-0656 or visit
