Riverfest nearing return to La Crosse’s Riverside Park

Event starts June 30th

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Riverfest returns to La Crosse’s Riverside Park soon.

Music, kids events and fireworks will be part of the celebration.

There won’t be a new Commodore for this year’s event.

And instead of food vendors under a tent, this year food trucks will be on hand to serve food so people can spread out.

“We’re removing a lot of our fencing which opens up the park. It allows people to wander and kind of be free throughout the day, again not in a centralized location around everyone else, if they choose not to be,” said Riverfest media director Derek Martin.

Riverfest runs June 30th through July 4th.
