The all new bigger and better than ever SAYVILLE SUMMERFEST - STARS & STRIPES, has been redesigned by our hardworking volunteer Summerfest Committee, who has been hard at work since last year. Started by Chamber members back in 1980 (first called “Oysterfest”) as a great summer event for the community, it has evolved and endured over time into a Sayville tradition.
Stars & Stripes is sponsored by Brookhaven Memorial Hospital, and features a 50’s vibe with a strong military tribute theme! Sayville’s downtown been bedecked in flags, thanks to sponsor Atlantic Hyundai.
