The Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce, Saturday, February 4, as the date of its annual winter festival, HarborFrost. This year’s festival will include a Friday night cocktail party for Chamber members and non-members and Saturday’s events will run from 1 to 6 p.m. This popular winter event began in 2011 and continues to delight locals and visitors alike.
“HarborFrost is such a great off-season tradition in Sag Harbor,” Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce President Ellen Dioguardi said. “This year’s event is getting us closer to what the early HarborFrost events looked like – including a Culinary Stroll and a Friday night opening cocktail party!”
Friday night’s HarborFrost Celebration will be held on the third-floor event space and Green Room bar of the Sag Harbor Cinema. With food from Sag Harbor’s most popular restaurants, including Lulu Kitchen & Bar, The Corner Bar, Sag Pizza, K Pasa, Sen, Il Capuccino, Dopo La Spiaggia, Bell & Anchor and chef Peter Ambrose, this opening night celebration will be a winter taste of Sag Harbor. Tickets will go on sale ($40 for Chamber members and $50 for the general public) January 20 for the Friday, February 3, 6 to 8 p.m. event.
The highlight of HarborFrost will be a firework display by Grucci, the world-renowned pyrotechnic artists, who will light up the winter sky with an extravagant and unique display from the end of Long Wharf. The fireworks, co-sponsored by the Chamber and Propane Depot.com, will take off at approximate 5:45 p.m.
Richard Daly of Ice Melodies will once again put on a performance and carving demonstration at Long Wharf by the Chamber Windmill from 2:30 to 4 p.m. His ice sculptures will also once again decorate the village, sponsored by many Sag Harbor Chamber members.
Also, by Long Wharf on Windmill Beach will be a performance by Keith Leaf and the Fiery Sensations, a troupe of performance fire jugglers/dancers whose show will begin as the sun begins to set over the harbor.
Live music will ring out from a few locations along Main Street and many Chamber members will be offering specials to celebrate HarborFrost.
“For anyone looking for something to do on the East End in February, HarborFrost is the ultimate answer, and a perfect celebration of winter in beautiful Sag Harbor Village,” Dioguardi said. “All our member businesses will be open and ready to serve with great food, drinks, shopping and fun for the whole family.”
