The vision of Be-In Festival Productions, Inc. is to improve the quality of life in local communities in Suffolk County through art, music, charitable endeavors, and educational information dissemination.
The Be-In Festival, which has been in existence since 1988, takes its inspiration from the original outdoor counter-culture extravaganzas. The first Be-Ins, also known as Happenings, were held in the late 1960's. Our Be-In combines an acoustic and electric concert with guest speakers, poetry readings, creative arts, merchandising, vendors and non-profit organizations.
