This FREE event features delicious food, activities for kids of all ages and multiple stages of live entertainment. Other fun activities include the Riverfest Regatta and much more!

What should I leave at home?

Riverfest is free because of the generous support of our sponsors and community partners. To remain a free festival, we rely on the sale of food and beverage. Coolers and outside food or beverage (including alcohol) are strictly prohibited.
