Getting There

Newburyport Riverfront Music Festival Logo

The Newburyport Riverfront Music Festival is held at Waterfront Park in downtown Newburyport — a small coastal city in Essex County, MA, 35 miles northeast of Boston. The park overlooks Newburyport Harbor, where the Merrimack River meets the sea — a terrific venue to enjoy live music!
