Celebrating the Beautiful French Broad
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.
RiverFest serves as a fundraiser for RiverLink, and a chance for us to celebrate our beautiful river and incredible community. The proceeds from the event goes to support our on the ground work throughout the watershed.
