Meet Riverfront Stadium

Riverfront Stadium is a $75 million state-of-the-art, multi-purpose venue on the west bank of the Arkansas River near downtown Wichita, on the former site of Lawrence-Dumont Stadium (1934 to 2018). While the stadium is most widely known as the home of the Wichita Wind Surge, it was built with many uses in mind.

There are also public events each year beyond the minor league games. There have been college baseball and football games, farm and art markets and the 2023 Kansas Global Holiday Market. The stadium has unique indoor-outdoor meeting spaces that also attracts private events ranging from corporate gatherings to weddings

Seating at Riverfront Stadium


Riverfront Stadium can seat 6,500 in the seating bowl plus 3,500 more on berms and picnic areas for a baseball game. As many as 18,000 people can attend a concert or other events when the field is used for sitting or standing.

Fan comfort was built into the stadium, from drink rails to uninterrupted views of the field from the concourse. Seats average 21 inches wide, making them some of the widest among minor league ballparks in the country, and roomy rows in the seating bowl mean you don’t have to get up each time someone walks out of the row. Riverfront Stadium was the first stadium built with a design that included a protective net around the entire field for safety during baseball games.

What’s the best seat in Riverfront Stadium? That’s subjective and depends on your preferences, but there’s not a bad view anywhere in the stadium. Among the seating options: reserved field box seats, loge boxes, premium rail seats in right field, the grassy berm in left field, Fidelity Bank Bravely Onward Club seats and nightly suite rentals.


With more than 9,000 parking spaces near the stadium and along a downtown shuttle route and free Q-Line downtown transportation route, visitors can find ample parking for events. As roads may be congested, it is best to plan ahead when you drive. Identify where you plan to park and map your routes both to your parking location and the stadium. Handicap parking stalls are available on-site. Limited on-street parking is available around the stadium. The Delano and Downtown areas are walkable, with the Maple and Douglas bridges offering pedestrian walkways to parking areas east of the Arkansas River.

Food & Drink

Fans can bring in one 16-ounce sealed water bottle and otherwise are not permitted to bring outside food or beverages into Riverfront Stadium. Concession stands throughout the stadium sell hot dogs, burgers, pizza, ice cream, popcorn and other ballpark favorites. A food court area in the concourse behind home plate also has a stand featuring Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, a national chain started by Wichita entrepreneurs. There is full bar service, specialty cocktails and local craft beer on tap.

The stadium has an in-house food and beverage team offering upscale menu items in the private suites and for special events at Riverfront Stadium.

Cashless Transactions

Riverfront Stadium operates as a cashless facility, including food/beverage, merchandise, tickets and parking. This helps limit direct contact between employees and guests. Fans with cash wanting to exchange for a prepaid card can find a Ready Station cash-to-card kiosk in either Team Store.

Wichita Baseball Museum

The Wichita Baseball Museum at Riverfront Stadium opened in 2022. Housed in the team’s administrative building off the right field concourse and accessible from the River Plaza entrance along McLean Blvd., the museum honors the history of baseball in Wichita, including past minor league teams and National Baseball Congress World Series legends.

Riverfront Stadium Mural


You’ll find more than a dozen public artworks by local and regional artists in and around Riverfront Stadium. There’s a unique baseball scene along the Sycamore Street fence that requires you be at just the right angle to fully see it and a cast concrete frieze from the city’s former stadium has been incorporated into an artwork called “Point Of Convergence” that welcomes visitors on the south exterior wall of the stadium.

Walk around the exterior of the stadium to see the art installed at each entrance: the Maple Street entry is flanked by a vivid baseball history mural by Brickmob as well as a hanging sculpture as you walk into the stadium; Derek Porter’s 30-foot tall shimmering “Faceted Column” has nearly 5,000 faceted mirror surfaces that collect and recast images of the surroundings outside the McLean Boulevard gate; the Delano Street entrance has a pedestal where a new sculpture will be mounted every year.

Inside, notice the decorative art elements throughout the concourse and home plate food court, and don’t miss the murals in the concourse restrooms by Lupoli Collective.
