Sag Harbor’s annual HarborFrost is a wintry celebration of the historic South Fork village with a fire and ice theme.

And it’s returning next Saturday, Feb. 5.

Explore the village with your family and enjoy a host of events throughout the day, from a unique scavenger hunt to an ice carving demonstration and more.

Here’s what’s in store.

At 1 p.m. the Neo-Political Cowgirls theater troupe will host ZIMA, a 45-minute theatrical scavenger hunt about nature and darkness. We know it sounds mysterious, but the Neo-Political Cowgirls, led by Kate Mueth, produce a number of extremely interesting and fun theatrical events and use the space around them to tell stories while engaging their audiences. There is $20 suggested donation per group and it starts at 1 p.m., 1:15 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. at the Civil War Memorial on the corner of Main Street and Madison Street.

At 2:30 p.m., Ice Memories (formerly Ice Melodies) will carve a series of spectacular works of art out of ice in real time in Steinbeck Park. There will also be smaller ice carvings throughout the village, so keep an eye out!

Stick around Steinbeck Park for a safe, socially distanced dance party with popular NY-based spin master DJ Twilo at 4 p.m. 

At 5:15 p.m., Keith Leaf & The Fiery Sensations will perform a fire dance at Windmill Beach near the Long Wharf. This is always a highlight of the event, as Leaf brings new meaning to playing with fire as he juggles torches and dances with the talented Fiery Sensations.

Look up at the sky around 5:45 p.m. for a fireworks show by Grucci. 

While you’re in Sag Harbor, here are some staff recommendations you can check out between festivities.

Grindstone Coffee & Donuts (7A Main Street) serves freshly baked, small-batch cake and brioche donuts with lovely glazes and fillings. Have some hot (or iced, though it’s a bit cold out!) coffee while you’re there.

LT Burger (62 Main Street) has juicy, unique burger creations crafted by Chef Laurent Tourondel — the Route 27 has caramelized onions, peppered bacon, Mecox cheddar and smoky ketchup — with creamy hand-spun shakes.

Sen (23 Main Street) has amazing sushi, an expansive menu of both hot and cold sake, shared plates like dumplings and fried rice and more.
