2019 Wichita Riverfest

May 31 - June 8

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 nine days of excitement is the largest and longest-running festival in the region.

Get ready to experience Wichita's biggest tradition with newer features like Project PopCon (a fusion of the former WichiCon and Midwest eSports), drone races and performances by the Wichita Wurlitzer as well as old favorites like opening fireworks, the Riverfest parade, the River Run, stock tank races and hot air balloons.

There will be so much fun packed into this festival, you won't be able to do it all in one day!

Stay tuned for 2020 event information, concert schedules, food court vendors and family-friendly activities.
