Wichita Riverfest is in it's 48th year celebrating community. From the beginning, as part of the City’s Centennial celebration in 1970, the goal was to bring the entire community together, to build community pride and focus on Wichita’s beautiful natural resource, the Arkansas River.
Last year, more than 450,000 attended the week-long celebration!
This year, we're taking The Swing indoors to Century II's Exhibition Hall and will be popping-up during Riverfest on:
SATURDAY & SUNDAY, JUNE 1st & 2nd from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
THIS APPLICATION IS FOR HANDMADE & VINTAGE VENDORS ONLY
BOOTHS WILL BE 10x10 and indoors.
BOOTH FEE IS $225.00 and will come with a Festival Button to enjoy the week-long festivities of Riverfest.
