Cow Harbor Weekend is a celebration of the Northport Community!
The weekend starts with Great Cow Harbor 10K race number pickup at the William Brosnan School on Laurel Avenue, Friday evening. The local Village population more than doubles Saturday morning with the running of the Great Cow Harbor 10-Kilometer Run that hosts 5,000 runners and twice as many spectators.
No sooner does the race end Saturday morning and the festivities of the weekend commence. Saturday evening hosts the annual Cow Harbor Weekend concert in the Village Park at 8:00 PM.
Sunday is a day whereby Main Street and the parking lots near the water are all closed and the cars give way to the 25,0000+ pedestrians that converge on Northport.
There is a parade at noon, down Main Street, followed by sidewalk sales by Northport’s merchants, Newton Shows provides rides and games, Arts & Crafts vendors and local not for profit groups take over the Village park hawking their wares and message.
This is a weekend full of family fun, and there is something for EVERYONE, whether it's competing in the race, cheering on your friends, or just enjoying the live music, food and rides!
