CT: New Haven County- Milford- Charles Island Music Festival

For the fifth year, the Charles Island Music Festival was held off of Silver Sands State Park on a barge!

This annual event benefits the Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital. It’s otherwise a free event but given it’s great cause and how well it’s orchestrated, I would recommend a donation.

I generally kayak lakes and lazy rivers so would not normally go out on the Tidal waters of the Sound. But this was a party on the water with loads of folks around.

This offered me the opportunity to finally see the other side of the tombolo ( a term I learned by frequenting Silver Sands) which connects to Charles Island via a tombolo which is navigable only during low tide.

If you are attending via Kayak like I did, drop it off at the beach and go park your car in the Silver Sands parking lot. There was ample room for parking so don’t let that stop you. Recommend bringing a bungie cord to hook up somewhere to stay in place to listen to the music.

I’m so glad I got myself up and went! It was awesome! Great Job Charles Island Music Festival!
