Our free day-long outdoor Festival will feature food, crafts, dance and music, from noon to 9pm at the Harbor’s Visitor Center on the Erie Canal with the popular band “Hair of the Dog” performing from 7pm-9pm. Last year, our first Festival and 10th annual “Concert Under the Stars” attracted an enthusiastic crowd (see picture pic below)

The price for food/commercial vendors is $100 for space from noon to 9pm. For crafts and packaged hand-made food items (mustards, jams, etc - not eaten on-site) the booth fee is $35. To make this a successful day for you as well as for us, we will limit the number of vendors selling similar items.
