The Clearwater Award

The Clearwater Award

Presented to a festival that prioritizes environmental stewardship and demonstrates public leadership in sustainable event production.

2018 Award Winner

To be announced November 2017.

2017 Award Winner


The inaugural award is presented to its namesake organization, the Clearwater Festival. Held along the banks of the Hudson River at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson, NY, the festival’s roots are based in the environmental movement and the event strives towards zero festival waste, most recently diverting 12 tons of recycling and compost from landfill, totaling 80% of their waste stream. In honor of their steadfast leadership in setting an example for the music industry on powerful environmental stewardship, we are pleased to present Clearwater Festival with this eponymous award.
