I was in Newburyport and people we were having diner with were complaining because they lost Riverfest to Gloucester. They said it was an awesome event and they felt like Newburyport was losing out to Gloucester. Huge win for us. Huge win for local businesses. Huge win for us that get to see world class acts right here in our back yard!
Great job Mayor and City Council to make this happen!
Riverfest Seaside Music Festival
Stage Fort Park, Gloucester, MA
Saturday, August 24, 2019, 12-6pm
We heard you when you told us we’d outgrown the venue in Newburyport. So, we’re excited to share that Riverfest is moving to a new, larger venue — beautiful Stage Fort Park, Gloucester, overlooking Gloucester Harbor.
And we’ve also moved the event up one week from its traditional Labor Day weekend. The event will be held Saturday, August 24, 2019, 12-6pm.
And something that surely hasn’t changed — Riverfest will continue to be free and open to the public, as it’s always been.
We’re stoked about the future for this popular, perennial event, and we hope you’ll join us on August 24th for an awesome day of live music and great vibes!
