Riverfest Porch Parade

Anytime, June 4, 2021 | Anywhere in Wichita

Unleash your creativity and celebrate the Riverfest spirit by decorating your porch, yard, or windows. Help us spread joy to your neighbors and connect communities across the city! Wichita Festivals will produce a virtual map with the locations of all registered Riverfest Porch Parade participants, so you can plan a walk or drive around your neighborhood to see and share in the celebration.

The Riverfest Porch Parade will take place from June 4 until June 6. Register by May 21 to receive a complimentary yard sign. On the weekend of June 4-6, a Riverfest VIP Procession will drive through select Riverfest Porch Parade neighborhoods. Get your neighbors to register and join in the celebration to increase your chances of having the Riverfest VIP Procession cruise through your neighborhood!
