Annual RiverFest to celebrate local rivers

RiverFest 2014Region – Don’t miss the 13th Annual RiverFest , an opportunity to enjoy a full weekend of activities celebrating our local federally-designated Wild & Scenic Rivers, the Sudbury, Assabet, and Concord, from Friday, June 20 through Sunday, June 22. Forty-five events in nine communities will be free and open to all who want to experience the beautiful rivers flowing through our communities.

In the MetroWest area, from Framingham to Lowell, events will be hosted on and along the rivers highlighting all the things that make these rivers so special. The offerings provide something for everyone—children and adults, those who are adventuresome and want to be on the water, as well as those who enjoy history, the arts, or a scenic stroll along the river banks.

There are boat rides, bird watching walks, fishing classes and canoe trips, as well as historical reenactments, art exhibits, and music. Kids may especially enjoy events allowing them to explore the river banks or get an up-close look at some wildlife. Local community groups plan and organize all the activities.  Stay close to home, or travel a short distance, and spend the day enjoying all the rivers have to offer.

For a full listing of events, maps, and to find the events in your community, visit www.sudbury-assabet-concord.org. Some events will require pre-registration. Call 978-369-3956 with any questions.
