Join your fellow water enthusiasts for an all-day festival celebrating one of our most precious natural resources. On June 22 at the IPFW campus, you can enjoy art, music, family and friends, food and fun in and along the St. Joseph River.
By participating in RiverFest, you will be helping our community support initiatives of Fort Wayne Friends of the River. The mission of this festival is to preserve, protect, and promote Fort Wayne's Rivers by raising awareness through education and fun. At RiverFest, kids and adults alike will learn about the water, take a pontoon ride, canoe and kayak, plus take part in a cardboard boat race.
On hand will be experts on water who build hovercrafts, race boats, waterski, and land planes on water. With all the water access available to us on Fort Wayne's rivers, there's no excuse not to get out and enjoy! Go boating, fishing, or hiking and biking along the rivers. Celebrate our local waters at IPFW's RiverFest 2013!
