Downtown Sunbury


Summer in the Susquehanna River Valley means the return of the annual Sunbury River Festival! Families come from far and wide to catch the popular event where a variety of live music and entertainment echoes along Front Street. Where good food and good times are abundant for people of all ages.

The festivities kick off on Thursday evening at The Valley’s Got Talent Competition.

Beginning at 12:00 PM on Friday kids games and vendors of all kinds are set up with their wares through the evening.

If you aren’t tired of the fun yet, come back on Saturday. The fun and games start at 9:00 AM. You can enjoy the wide variety of free entertainment or express your artistic side and enter the Chalk the Walk Competition. If cars are your thing you can’t miss the 100+ hot rods that line the street in the annual car show. If you are more of a late riser, come out in the afternoon to check out the Cardboard Boat Regatta (cancelled due to weather), the 2nd annual Lake Augusta Boat Parade (cancelled due to weather), and end the weekend with Sunbury After Hours Concert.

Join the many that plan their summer vacations around the event which celebrates the grand Susquehanna River as no other festival does.
