Vicksburg's Riverfest


Welcome to RiverFest!

Welcome to RiverFest and Vicksburg, Mississippi, the Red Carpet City of the South: blocks and blocks of river artisans, foods of the world, and lively regional music.
Shop our wonderful shops, enjoy our newly renovated downtown, and take in the great sites and sounds that make Vicksburg a national attraction.
But save something for sundown, when the bluffs start to jump and the revelers begin to pound the bricks!
The 24th annual RiverFest will be held April 15-16, 2011 featuring the Arts and Crafts Show as well as live entertainment from 7pm to 12am nightly. Gates for nightly events will open at 6pm.
The RiverFest Arts & Crafts Show is an annual event, offering handmade Arts & Crafts, Food Booths, and Entertainment, including street performers, live bands, kids games, GospelFest and much, much more! The show is open from 8am - 4pm on Saturday. Attendance for Saturday Daytime Activities is free and parking is free for the whole weekend!
If you are interested in becoming a street vendor/Food & Beverage Concessionaire at the festival, please contact the Vicksburg Main Street Program at kimh@vicksburg.org.
We are always looking for sponsors to help make this event a success! The Vicksburg RiverFest Music and Arts and Crafts Festival is solely funded by donations and sponsorships. If your business or organization is interested in sponsoring Riverfest, email: riverfestms@yahoo.com
