This year, in an effort to both accommodate festival fans who are eager to get out in the sunshine and keep attendees safe, the festival will be presented in two extended weekends.
June 4-6 will feature mostly participatory events, including the Fidelity Bank River Run on Saturday, a Riverfest triathlon on Sunday, Paddle Board 5K and other river races, USA Softball tournaments, and a plein air painting festival throughout the weekend.
The second half of Riverfest, scheduled for Sept. 30-Oct. 3, will include a festival food court, headliner concerts, fireworks, iconic kids’ events such as KAKE TouchATruck, the Sundown Parade and more.
Riverfest admission buttons for the fall event will be available starting in late August at area QuikTrip locations:
$10 for adults and $5 for children.
Kids five years old and younger get in free.
Most participatory event registrations for the early summer event include a button. Buttons are also available at WichitaFestivalsShop.com. Those who bought Riverfest 2020 buttons can use them for admission to the fall portion of the festival, which will be gated.
Registration has begun for Fidelity Bank River Run at RiverRunWichita.com. Those interested in participating in the USA Softball tournaments can find more info at WichitaRiverfest.com, where all event details will be posted as they become available.
