  • Harborfest is a four day festival scheduled for the last full weekend in July and typically brings over 100,000 people on an annual basis to Oswego NY. Since its founding in 1988, Harborfest has brought to its stages more than 600 national, regional and local performing artists on an admission free basis. Every year the small part time staff and a volunteer board of directors work hard to provide quality entertainment and memorable experiences for people of all ages from the arts and crafts venue at River Walk East, the Jazz and Blues Stage in Washington Square Park (East Park), the Veteran’s Stage at River Walk West, the Children’s Park in Franklin Square Park (West Park), the Strates Midway on the north end of West 1st Street, the Lakeview Stage at Breitbeck Park and the world famous Grucci Fireworks display in the harbor. Harborfest receives strong support from the City of Oswego, Oswego County, the Oswego Police Department, the Oswego Fire Department, the Oswego Department of Public Works, the Oswego County Sheriff’s Department, the NYS Police Department, Oswego County Emergency Management, S.A.V.A.C. of Oswego, and the United States Coast Guard. This along with the financial and in-kind support from local industries, businesses and individual members provides the strong foundation that has made Harborfest the nationally recognized festival it is today. At Harborfest we also rely heavily on the unselfish dedication of the many volunteers who donate countless hours each year to make sure Harborfest is an enjoyable and happy experience for all who attend.
