Sunbury River Festival

In its 32nd year in 2021, Sunbury River Festival will welcome thousands of visitors to Sunbury for a weekend celebration of family fun, food and of course, the beautiful Susquehanna River.  This year’s theme is “Back to the River, Back to Our Roots”; we will bring back crowd favorites from the last 32 years as well as celebrate the beautiful Susquehanna River & Riverfront Park.

Sunbury River Festival kicks off Friday at 4pm and carries through the Saturday with family friendly entertainment, live music, competitions, the Car Cruise-In and a variety of food and craft vendors…it’s fun for everyone!
