Harborfest 2019 is seeking local and regional performers for appearances at the 32nd edition of the festival slated for July 25 – 28, 2019.

Harborfest’s goal for 2019 is to continue the long standing tradition of offering quality entertainment that will attract people from all areas of NYS and beyond.

Artists of all genres of music interested in appearing at Harborfest 2019 can obtain information and an application by logging onto the Harborfest website (, under the "Applications" tab, or at the Harborfest office, 41 Lake Street in Oswego, Monday – Wednesday between the hours of 9 AM – 4 PM.

There is no application fee, but a clearly labeled CD or audiotape and press or information kit must accompany each application. Applications must be completed and submitted with all requested information to the Harborfest office by no later than October 1, 2018.

Harborfest was founded with the mission of creating nationally recognized festivals and events that attract and engage a broad and diverse audience, celebrate and build community, and advance economic development in Oswego, New York.
