The Ronceverte River Festival  

River Festival

   We're having the Festival! This year's the Festival will be a 2 day event, starting with a parade on June 11th. The festival features attractions, vendors, live performances, and great fair food! The main event is The Great Rubber Ducky Race which happens on Saturday at 4 PM. A single ticket can win you one of many prizes awarded or the Grand Prize of $5,000. The more tickets you buy means more chances you have to win! Events, games, live music and contests fill the weekend and the festival culminates with a Fireworks Display on Saturday night.

The River Festival is a community event, and for that we need community involvement. The more you can do, the better it can be. Help us make this year the best Festival ever.
