2020 Rivanna RiverFest Canceled

With deference to guidance from public health officials, and in the spirit of supporting the health of our Rivanna watershed community, we are canceling this year’s Rivanna RiverFest, scheduled for May 3rd. The associated Fix a Leak Family 5k and Rivanna River Race are also canceled. Plans for the 2021 RiverFest and races are already under way. 

While we are disappointed that we won’t be able to celebrate the Rivanna River at RiverFest with you this spring, we are more thankful than ever to have this amazing resource in our backyards. During this time of great uncertainty, we appreciate the many health benefits that being outside and near the water brings. If you are able to get out safely to one of our local river trails or parks, we hope that you will enjoy them too.


On Sunday, May 3rd, 2020, join us on the Rivanna River for the Rivanna RiverFest!  This family-friendly event will connect everyone to the Rivanna River and the environment in Charlottesville. We will have water sports, a run through the park, kid's activities, live music, monitoring demonstrations, and more!

Events include:

  • Rivanna River Race: Kayak or canoe down the Rivanna from Rio Mills Road to the Rivanna River Company
  • Fix a Leak Family 5K: Run park to park and stop that running toilet!
  • Kid's activities
  • Community tables
  • Live music, fun, and more!

Check out the website for more information.

We can't wait to see you on the River!
