An event is all about an experience and  Harbourfest July 13 is set to give people an experience and 'taste' of Owen Sound, all in one day!

Harbourfest is once again taking over the Owen Sound inner harbour to draw crowds for food, drinks, live entertainment and fun family activities from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM, rain or shine. Admission is free.

On the east harbour wall, a fully-licensed area will be set up to enjoy performers all day long, including:
- 1:00 PM & 3:00 PM - Children’s entertainer Magical Duda, with some up-close strolling magic on the grounds in between stage shows;
- 4:15 PM - Funk-fusion band The Accolades;
- 6:00 PM - Multi-talented pop-rock musician Stacey Renee and her band;
- 8:00 PM - Musical headliner Who Made Who - the most unrivaled tribute to AC/DC  up around, the power of Who Made Who mirrors the pure strength, energy, impeccable sound and larger than life stage production of an AC/DC show!

Craft breweries and food trucks will be on site to quench thirst and satisfy cravings while taking in the many different forms of entertainment provided at the event. In-water entertainment will include Georgian College’s Marine Training and Research centre demonstration of marine rescue missions, and two thrilling water ski shows at 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM in the inner harbour.

Plenty of local community groups and organizations will be on hand to offer event goers lots to see and do. This includes:
