2021 Wichita Riverfest
September 30-October 3
Riverfest started nearly 50 years ago as a way to celebrate and unify the community during Wichita's Centennial. Now, the jam-packed, fun-filled event is the largest, longest-running, and most anticipated festival in the region.
Normally a nine-day celebration, this year's festival will take place over two extended weekends in an effort to keep attendees safe. The summer weekend will accommodate festival fans who are eager to get out and enjoy the sunshine and will feature mostly participatory events. The fall weekend will have more of the traditional festivities like concerts, fireworks, food courts, and more.
