Harborfest

The Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce will host its annual fall festival on Saturday and Sunday, September 11 and 12, welcoming visitors and locals alike for a fun-filled weekend on Long Wharf and at Marine Park and Steinbeck Waterfront Park, among other locations across the village.

Once described as the largest block party extending out over the water, this year Harborfest will be a village-wide event celebrating the maritime history of Sag Harbor. We’re coming together to celebrate our community with music, festival activities for kids and adults, and of course, the time-honored whaleboat races!

The musical offerings will be expanded this year, as will the fun and games for children with some aspects of the festival moving into John Steinbeck Waterfront Park. Sag Harbor’s rich history will be on full display across the village with groups like the Sag Harbor Historical Society, the John Jermain Memorial Library, the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum and the Eastville Community Historical Society hosting events and happenings all weekend long.

The Chamber’s annual HarborFest Father’s Day Arts & Crafts Fair will be held in Marine Park on Bay Street on Saturday and Sunday. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, with more than 50 talented artists and crafters displaying their work for sale.

The Parks and Recreation Association of Sag Harbor will launch its annual 5K run/walk to help raise money for Mashashimuet Park improvements on Saturday, September 11. The event, “A Grand-run for the Grandstand” will raise money for the refurbishment of the park’s grandstand, which was built in 1908. The run will start at 8:30 a.m. and participants can register at mashashimuetpark.org/5K.
