Join the City of Harrisburg for Kipona 2020! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this annual festival has been modified to feature a hybrid of in-person and virtual activities.
Event program coming soon
Saturday, September 5 | 3-8pm | City Island
The in-person activities include 15 food trucks serving up some of your festival favorites followed by fireworks at 8:15pm. We encourage you to bring your own chairs and blankets if you plan to picnic or watch fireworks, both of which can be enjoyed from miles of space along the riverfront while socially distancing. Food trucks will have cones placed 6-ft apart for line formation and hand washing stations will be available. Masks are required to enter the food truck area.

The City of Harrisburg relies on community partners to produce all City events, including Kipona. This longstanding Labor Day tradition in the City of Harrisburg may look different as we pivot to provide a safe and enjoyable celebration amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Now more than ever we need safe activities and entertainment that feel familiar in this “new normal.” Please review the sponsorship packet and contact Megan Roby at 717-255-3169 or email@example.com for more information about sponsorship opportunities.
