Wabash Riverfest 2019

The Wabash River unites Lafayette and West Lafayette, IN. Thanks to the Wabash River Enhancement Corporation, there’s a local, annual celebration honoring the Wabash and bringing us all together. The Wabash Riverfest is in its 19th year, and it’s this Saturday, July 13, 2019. Here’s some information on what to expect at the event, where to park, and where to find additional info if needed! It’s a great family event, and we can’t wait to see you there!

What to expect at the Wabash Riverfest

The Wabash Riverfest expands from one side of the Wabash River to the other. Tapawingo Park houses most of the booths and check ins for participates in the events, but it extends over the John T. Meyer Pedestrian Bridge and into Riehle Plaza.

Riverfest has something for everyone, but one thing we love about this event is that it really encourages attendees to be active. With options available such as a 5K, a rock climbing wall, voyager canoe races, volleyball tourneys, live music, and more, there is surely an activity for you!
