67th Annual Strawberry Festival

By the middle of June the North Fork strawberry crop is reaching its peak and bursting with flavor. On Father’s Day weekend, the peak of the strawberry harvest, the Mattituck Lions Club brings the community together for a special weekend of fun and purpose. Whether you’re here year-round, are a seasonal resident or are drawn here by the Festival, you’re in for a wonderful time.

Dig into the strawberry shortcake, sample the strawberries dipped in chocolate, try the strawberries any way you like them. Head over to the rest tent to enjoy live music. Then find out what is available for sale from arts and craft vendors.

Cheer as the new Strawberry Queen is crowned. Experience the midway rides. Taste foods from around the world. The fun keeps going after the sun sets, so bring lawn chairs and enjoy the fireworks on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Much of the Festival fun is free, thanks to the efforts of our many volunteers. When you do spend, you help the Mattituck Lions advance their year-round community service efforts. Learn more about who benefits.

New Music Under The Big Sky

New Music Under The Big Sky will take you on a journey to create an immersive musical evening like nothing you have experienced before.
The performance features Rites of Spring Ensemble (R o S Ensemble), a new group that embodies the spirit of the new music culture and is dedicated to performing innovative, collaborative, and exciting works of living composers and the contemporary works from composers of the recent past. Whether you’re a classical lover or a lover of extraordinary experiences, Music in The Sky pushes the boundaries of a traditional music event. This program presents new music by Rohwer, Psathas, Reich, Roche, Goliov, Villa-Lobos and Richter for a very exciting evening of music and stargazing! R o S Ensemble aims by bringing people together, and focusing on what is happening today in the global arts world. Come and slow down with us, be immersed with music, lights and stars! Following the concert, Observatory staff will provide guided tours of the night sky (weather permitting) through our many telescopes on site, including the apochromatic Zerochromat telescope in our historic observation dome.

The Sounds of Nature

Most of the French composer’s music evokes the natural world in some form, and his critical writings and personal correspondence argue passionately for a symbiosis between music and nature.  Debussy’s music was often inspired by nature. He was able to hear music progressions in the swell of the ocean, or the natural movement of clouds in the sky.

This program presents the masterpiece Sonata for flute, viola, and harp with other music works by French composers Maurice Ravel and Francois Devienne.  Written six months after Debussy’s Trio for Flute, Viola, and Harp, the Elegiac Trio written by the English composer Arnold Bax it’s another great addition to the repertoire of that instrumentation.

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.
