Harborfest, Octfest and Other Weekend Ideas

Friday, September 7, 2018


Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do over the weekend. In New York and the Hamptons, there are just too many options. Fortunately, AVENUE’s editors have put their collective heads together and come up with a few suggestions, ranging from a festival in the Hamptons to a concert on Governors Island. What unites them all is that they’re worth your time.


 


Harborfest

Party in the Sag! Sag Harbor’s annual Harborfest returns this weekend with food, music, boat races and much, much more.
