October 8 & 9, 2016 Riverfest is a wonderful family celebration of the area's rich heritage. Created in 1979 by a group of Wilmingtonians showcasing the Cape Fear River, Riverfest is a cultural street festival that entices locals and tourists alike to Wilmington's historic downtown. Boasting craft vendors, concession booths, a children's play area, stage entertainment, Saturday night fireworks, and more, this year's fest will also feature the Second Annual Miss Riverfest Contest. Events are free and open to the public. 

 

Riverfest boasts craft vendors, concessions booths, a children’s play area, entertainment on various stages, Saturday night fireworks, a rowing regatta, and more. This year, we will also be debuting the First Annual Miss Riverfest. One well-deserving young lady will be crowned and perform hostess duties throughout the festival.
