Wichita Festivals, producers of Riverfest, invite you to a new event with awesome live music and the rare chance to camp in the heart of Wichita at the confluence of the Arkansas and Little Arkansas rivers!
Dwight Yoakam, touring in support of his popular bluegrass album, “Swimming Pools, Movie Stars …,” will headline the outdoor concert on Friday, with opening acts beginning at 4 p.m. The remainder of the line-up has an Americana and alt-country flair, including national acts Pokey LaFarge, Lindi Ortega, Moreland & Arbuckle and regional favorites, Carrie Nation & the Speakeasy. Saturday morning, an all-you-can-eat pancake and sausage breakfast will be accompanied by a performance featuring regional favorites, the Cherokee Maidens.
In addition to live music, attendees will enjoy local craft brews, a food truck rally, and late-night activities including a midnight movie and glow-in-the-dark games.
