The festival covers a wide range of musical styles including jazz, blues, folk, R&B, Americana, rock, and pop.  Local and national performers are featured throughout the weekend at events requiring tickets and at free shows. Funds raised at the festival support local school music programs and free live music performances throughout the year.

The kick-off event takes place on Friday night with the Grammy winning gospel artists The Fairfield Four performing at Old Whaler’s Church. Free performances will take place on Saturday throughout the Village of Sag Harbor at restaurants, local galleries, retail shops, and outdoor public spaces between 10:00 am and 8:00 pm.

Getting to Sag Harbor by boat requires a bit of concentration to avoid hazards. From Gardiner’s Bay, head south of Shelter Island — the channel turns north of Cedar Point and south of Mashomack Point into Northwest Harbor. The channel takes you past Barcelona Point, turns west towards North Haven Peninsula, and then turns south to Sag Harbor. There are a lot of boulders outside the Barcelona Point Channel and a group of rocks locally known as “Gull Island,” so stay in the channel.
