Earth Day Kids Festival
Each spring we host this special event specifically for the kids of WNC. All sorts of educators, environmental organizations, artists, and other groups come out to share their passion for our planet. Kids will learn cool facts about nature, create sustainable arts and crafts, see live performances and more! Entrance to the festival is open to all ages and is always free.
Over the years RiverFest has brought thousands of people down to the banks of the French Broad to enjoy live music, local beer, food, and sunsets over one of the oldest rivers in the world. Each year we gather some of the greatest local bands to come and pay tribute to this wonderful waterway! Leading up to the music we host the Anything that Floats Parade. All sorts of creative floats will start to be visible from New Belgium around noon.
