Despite the fact that an unprecedented July flood forced us to reschedule the fireworks to July 18th, more than 200,000 people enjoyed the fireworks show in 2013!
This year’s show, performed by Atlas Pyrovision, Gold Medal Winners of the 2012 Montreal International Fireworks Competition, was choreographed to popular Americana themed music that was broadcasted throughout the event sites. The computer-synchronized fireworks display were fired from three barges on the Connecticut River.
Our non-profit organization is able to offer this event thanks to sponsors and individual donors, whose support allows us to offer the event free of charge and open to the public.
We have begun planning Riverfest on July 12, 2014*. If this is an event you would feel is important to you and the community, please consider making a donation.
If you’d like to be a vendor or market your business at this event, please send us an email.
*This event date is subject to change, relocation or cancellation without notice.
