Fun for Kids
Long Wharf will be teeming with fun kids’ activities all weekend long, with bounce castles, games, competitions, amusements and so much more. New this year are The Barnyard Buddies, who bring their famous petting zoo for kids to enjoy at the end of Long Wharf. Just off the wharf on Windmill Beach will be tug-of-wars, hula hoop contests and the annual corn shucking contest. See schedule for complete details.
HarborFest’s signature event presented by The Sag Harbor Express off Windmill Beach, where annual bragging rights and the coveted Whalers Cups are on the line. The races had their origins in the Old Whalers Festival, which began in 1964 as an effort to drum up tourism during the shoulder season. Races begin at noon on Saturday and 11:30 a.m. on Sunday and run throughout the afternoon. Men’s, Women’s, Junior’s and Firefighter divisions will compete.
Live Music with The Scofflaws
This year’s festival will have more live music than ever, with musicians taking to Long Wharf throughout the day on both Saturday and Sunday. Old favorites like Jim Turner and the Sag Harbor Community Band, along with some new names like The Popsicles and The Steven Tekulsky Band. The festival wraps up on Saturday with a 5 p.m. performance by Gene Casey and The Lonesharks and a 7 p.m. show with the HooDoo Loungers.
Clam Chowder Contest Returns!
This year marks the return of the famous HarborFest Clam Chowder Contest, which begins at noon on Sunday. Sample chowders from local restaurants and take home a commemorative HarborFest mug! The event is sponsored by The Law Office of John J. Leonard, costs $18 to participate and will benefit the Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce.
