Welcome to Riverfest a 32-year long tradition in Narrowsburg New York! Held alongside the Delaware River, Riverfest is a celebration of Art, Music, and Ecology!
In addition to unique artisan vendors, the highly anticipated day-long event features amazing live music, a benefit poster auction, a hands-on Kids Crafting Corner, the beloved River Dogs (on) Parade, and regional street theater.
Riverfest is produced by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and made possible in part with major support from Jeff Bank, WJFF Radio Catskill, the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
Riverfest is jam-packed with fun activities throughout the day – don’t miss out on a single minute!
Emceed by Kevin McDonough who will be providing colorful commentary, this is a “don’t miss opportunity” for your pup (or faux pup) to strut their stuff before a panel of judges Tommy Cambridge, Donna Fellenberg, and Dean Scharf as well as a jubilant crowd. Register your dog in advance ($10) by calling DVAA at (845) 252-7576 or sign up the morning of Riverfest in front of Narrowsburg Feed & Grain starting at 9 am.
Be sure to bring your kids to the Kids Crafting Corner where young artists will get a chance to immerse themselves in various arts & crafts activities including making their own "Riverfest Poster"!
The Royal Yard’s 'Scuttlebutt Stu' Markus and 'Blood Red Robin' Greenstein perform a program, 'Pirates, Parrots and Patches' that includes explanations of life aboard a ship, incorporating elements of geography, science, and language. Their playful energy will get nearly any audience singing along!
Farm Arts Collective brings their special blend of street theater to Narrowsburg's Main Street with a selection of pieces from their current production "Dream on the River".
The Riverfest Poster Auction, the centerpiece of the day’s events, takes place on the main stage. It has become a “can’t miss” tradition and community favorite.
Over 40 original, one-of-a-kind posters created by local artists, will be sold in a live public auction to the highest bidder.
Artworks will be on display in DVAA’s gallery window. Not only will you be able to preview the works online but this year you can place bids on pieces in advance of the live sale. Proceeds support DVAA’s programs in the visual arts and participating artists.
