Mayor Barlow announces Summer Bash carnival event at Breitbeck Park July 29th-31st

Mayor Billy Barlow announced today the City of Oswego will be hosting a three-day public event at Breitbeck Park featuring carnival rides, games, food concessions, children’s activities, retail vendors, beer and wine garden and live music.  The event, scheduled for July 29th through July 31st, will act as a smaller substitute event for Harborfest, which was cancelled earlier this year, for the second consecutive year due to COVID-19.

“The City of Oswego is proud to host a “Summer Bash” festival at Breitbeck Park to bring some excitement to our community following the cancellation of Harborfest earlier this year,” said Mayor Billy Barlow.  “The Breitbeck Summer Bash will focus on children’s activities and carnival rides to give families a weekend full of excitement, while also bringing live music and a wine and beer garden available in the park for adults.  While the event is certainly much smaller than our traditional Harborfest, it is important to give families fun events to attend throughout the summer as we work to restore all of our large, annual events for 2022,” Barlow said.
