This year we’re bringing Riverfest to You!

In an abundance of caution, we’re adjusting the format to a more personalized “party pack” option instead of hosting our usual 1,400 person gathering down by the river.

Your party pack will be available for an afternoon pick-up in 3 locations: Culpeper, Fredericksburg or Tappahannock.

Our party packs will have everything you need to host your own great party – steamed crabs, shrimp boil, crab knockers, paper and more! Enjoy a feast with your family, friends and colleagues while supporting the river. We’ll still have live entertainment you can stream and an online auction to bid on your favorite items.

Early bird pricing lasts until September 30. On October 1, Party Packs will increase to $300. 

There are sponsorship opportunities available – learn more about the benefits of sponsorship here.

This event is our signature fundraiser and we are grateful for your support for the river.
