The Potsdam Chamber of Commerce’s Events and Festivals Committee met on January 27th and began the season of Summer Festival planning. The Potsdam Summer Festival was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is currently scheduled to return July 8th-10th for 2021.

The Chamber’s Executive Director, Kurstin Stowell, says “We are proceeding with hope and caution. We are making plans for the event with the clear understanding that it may not all come to life. We want to be as prepared as possible.”

Applications for vendor and musician participation will be released in February. For more information on the Potsdam Chamber of Commerce, visit or email
