Field Day Fest Permit Denied

Suffolk County has denied a mass gathering permit for the two-day festival in Calverton, NY, meaning “for now” the event can’t go ahead.

County health officials denied the permit today after Riverhead Police Chief David Hegermiller said his force wouldn’t be able to handle the expected crowd of 50,000. On Friday, county officials informed the town they wouldn’t be able to help with extra police officers because doing so would require an agreement between the Riverhead town board and the Suffolk county legislature. This wouldn’t have been possible, since the legislature doesn’t meet until after the June 7 and 8 concert.
