Wichita Riverfest Is Happening | Summer & Fall 2021


Family Guide to RiverfestMarch 2021 – Wichita’s largest community celebration, Wichita Riverfest, is happening in 2021. This community event will be a two-part festival, with part one launching in the summer and part two in the fall. 

Summer 2021

To best accommodate social distancing, June 4-6, 2021 will be participatory events such as river races like the River Run, triathlons, Paddle Board 5K, and softball tournaments throughout the weekend.

Fidelity Bank Wichita River Run 2021 Registration is Live – You can Register here, including the family run and Tot Trot. A Family Guide to Riverfest

  • Adult (13 and over) 2 Mile Walk – $20

The summer portion of the event will not have the typical downtown festival activities or food court – that part is reserved for the fall.
