Don't miss the celebration...
Save the date for Riverfest 2020! June 20 & 21, 2020
Riverfest going virtual this June!
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are making some adjustments to Riverfest 2020. In an effort to maintain the community and celebratory aspects of Riverfest while minimizing the number of group gatherings, we will be moving to a virtual Riverfest this year.
Celebrate your Wild and Scenic River during Riverfest, June 20th and 21st —a weekend of virtual river events and self-guided exploration!
The full line-up of virtual events will be available at this website by the end of May. Can’t wait until then? We encourage you to get out and explore the rivers and trails in your neighborhood this spring!
2019 Riverfest was a huge success!
THANKS to everyone who participated in the 18th annual RiverFest in June 2019, a weekend long event celebrating the Sudbury, Assabet and Concord Wild and Scenic Rivers. Thank you to last year's event sponsors:
The weekend featured more than 30 events in nine communities, free and open to all who wanted to experience the rivers. In the MetroWest area, from Framingham to Lowell, events were hosted on and along the rivers highlighting all the things that make these rivers so special. The offerings were diverse, suitable for younger and older people, those who are adventuresome and want to be on the water, as well as those who enjoy history, the arts, or a scenic stroll along the river banks. There were boat rides, bird watching walks, and canoe trips, as well as historical reenactments, art activities, and music. Kids enjoyed events allowing them to explore the river banks or got an up close look at some wildlife.
Thank you to all of the partners and volunteers who planned and ran the local events. We could not have done this without you!
