In its 29th year in 2018, Sunbury River Festival welcomes thousands of visitors to Sunbury for a weekend celebration of family fun, food and of course, the beautiful Susquehanna River.

Sunbury River Festival kicks off Thursday evening with The Valley’s Got Talent, our hometown talent competition, and carries through the weekend with live music, the Car Cruise-In, Chalk the Walk, Cardboard Boat Regatta and a variety of food and craft vendors plus activities for the entire family.  We close the festival on Saturday evening at the Riverfront Amphitheater with music, food and FIREWORKS!
