Now entering its 31st year in 2024, the Watkins Glen Waterfront Festival is set against the scenic backdrop of the historic Erie Canalway, highlighting the region's rich maritime heritage. Anchored by the popular Cardboard Boat Regatta held on Saturday of Father’s Day weekend, join us at Seneca Harbor Park on Saturday, June 15th, from 11am to 7pm! Food, Craft, and non-profit vendors will be open from 11am along the Harbor Parking lots and grass. We will also have FREE Children’s Activities in the Cardboard Boat Concourse area, so be sure to check out the boats and the fun! As always, a local favorite band will be playing in the large parking lot tent near Lucky Hare Brewing, following the award announcements. This year get ready to listen to Five Man Trio! Stroll through the Concourse de Cardboard, check out the cardboard boats, and meet the crews. Then laugh and applaud the bold and adventurous Captains and Crews of the Cardboard Boat Regatta as they bravely sail their cardboard crafts from launch to the finish line! The Cardboard Boat Regatta will begin promptly at 2pm. You will not want to miss this. In addition to the races, a full lineup of food, beverage, and craft vendors will be on-site, as well as live music. Stay until the end to enjoy the music!
