The 2021 Wichita River Festival is very different from any other. The first half happened in spring with participatory events like a porch parade. The second half of Riverfest 2021 will be held Sept. 20 through Oct. 3 and will look more like the traditional downtown fest we’re used to with a food court, live music, and other activities held near the river.
A Riverfest button offers entry to all the events, including the concerts. Buttons are $10 for adults and only $5 for kids ages 6-12. You can buy your buttons at an entrance gate, at participating local businesses, at the Wichita Festivals office at 444 E. William St. or online.
A festival mini guide to scheduled River Festival events is available online. For more information, visit WichitaRiverfest.com
