The 4th annual Southampton SeptemberFest, a weekend of activities that celebrate art, music, dance, food, entertainment and the rich history of Southampton, will take place from Friday, September 26, to Sunday, September 28.
Southampton SeptemberFest provides residents and visitors with the opportunity to get out and enjoy Southampton Village during one of the most beautiful times of the year. Organized by leading civic, cultural and business groups, SeptemberFest is a collaboration between Rogers Memorial Library, Southampton Arts Center, Southampton Chamber of Commerce, Southampton Cultural Center, Southampton Historical Museum, Southampton Rotary Club and the Village of Southampton.
This year, the weekend will kick off with a cocktail party on Friday night.

Proceeds from the event support the Southampton Rotary Club’s Scholarship & Endowment Fund.
The festivities will shift into high gear on Saturday with a full day of events for the entire family. Festivalgoers will enjoy concerts in Agawam Park, a Taste of Southampton chowder contest, food vendors, live demonstrations by the Maniac Pumpkin Carvers, juggling and beat boxing performances by Jester Jim, pumpkin decorating, stagecoach rides, face painting, the farmers market, a book sale, juried art show, arts and crafts vendors, live music throughout the village, the Harvest Day Fair by the Southampton Historical Museum and a musical performance by Center Stage.
The farmers market and vendors return on Sunday to continue the fun with a special dance performance in Agawam Park by Teresa Fellion Dance, music by Charles Certain and Certain Moves, Art in the Park by Southampton Artists Association, and much more.
