Welcome, Waterfront Festival, Watkins Glen, NY, Finger Lakes Wine Country
The Watkins Glen Waterfront Festival was organized in 1994 as an opportunity to offer visitors the opportunity to enjoy the Watkins Glen Waterfront and as a tribute to the Captain Bill's Stroller IV. Built in 1934, Stroller IV, has hosted hundreds of thousands of visitors on one hour tour of the Watkins Glen Harbor and nearby sights.

Today the Stroller IV is still hosting visitors and the Waterfront Festival has grown to an event that hosts thousands of visitors from near and far to the shores of Seneca Lake in Watkins Glen.

A delightfully entertaining experience awaits you at the Seneca Harbor Park on the beautiful shores of Seneca Lake in downtown Watkins Glen. Enjoy a full day of activities for the entire family, highlighted by the Cardboard Boat Regatta.
