Thank you to our 2019 Sunbury River Festival Event Partners:


In its 30th year in 2019, Sunbury River Festival welcomes 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 “Rewind: Celebrating 30 Years of River Festival”; we will bring back crowd favorites from the last 30 years as well as celebrate the year 1989.

Sunbury River Festival kicks off Thursday evening with The Valley’s Got Talent, our hometown talent competition, and carries through the weekend with family friendly entertainment, live music, the Car Cruise-In, Chalk the Walk, an outdoor movie and a variety of food and craft vendors…it’s fun for everyone!
