Save the Date: Harrison Fest 2017

On Friday, September 23, 2017, through Sunday, September 24, 2017, the Town of Harrison will be celebrating Harrison Fest and be joined by the Harrison Fest Queens who will hold their Gala Dinner on Friday, September 15, 2017.

If last years successful Harrison Fest, doesn't convince you to come to enjoy the diverse ethnic groups gathered together in a festive weekend with a parade, street festival with vendors, games, DJ and live act and performing artists then we don't know what to say. Last year the Harrison Fest was a spectacular success. This year, it is anticipated that the crowds will be much larger since word has gotten out that it’s the place to have fun and be seen.

On Saturday, September 23, at 12 noon there will be a parade formed by many different ethnic groups, political leaders and community groups including marching bands and floats. There will be the main stage area where following the parade multicultural performing artists and folkloric groups will perform on Saturday, September 23 from 2 pm to 10 pm and on Sunday, September 24 from 1 pm to 5 pm.

Harrison Avenue from Davis Avenue to 2nd Street will be closed to vehicle traffic and turned into a pedestrian mall.  On Saturday, September 23, Harrison Avenue will be closed temporarily at Joseph Supor Blvd or approximately 1 hour to allow the Harrison Fest Parade to come off Joseph Supor Boulevard onto Harrison in route to Harrison Town and 2nd Street.  Harrison Avenue will remain closed at Davis Avenue during the festival.

Thank You OutFront Media

A year ago OutFront media converted its billboard overlooking Route 280 in Harrison from a traditional (static) billboard to an electronic billboard.  The billboard went live shortly thereafter and coincided with last year's Harrison Fest.  Outfront Media was nice enough to produce and display advertisements for last year's Harrison Fest and OutFront Media has once again designed and offered to display information about our events to get the word out about our United Nations Gala Pageant, our Parade, and our Street Fair events.  A big Thank You for OutFront Media for your support.
