Sponsorship is a great way to stand behind your community (if you’re a local) or make your brand known in the Wichita area for the first time (if you haven’t gotten to know us yet).


Did you know that more than 7,000 volunteers worked a total of 35,832 hours to make Riverfest 2016 possible? Get involved. Volunteer!


The Celebrations for a Cause program makes it possible for worthy citizens – who may not otherwise have the chance – to attend Riverfest. Please pitch in and help us share the joy!
