Riverfest canceled, again

KENNEWICK — The 2021 RiverFest Celebration Festival at Columbia Park has been canceled.

The event was scheduled for Oct. 9.

“It is very unfortunate that for the second year in a row we have to cancel this fun celebration, and we had great new exhibitors slated for this year,” Pasco Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Colin Hastings said. “We are excited to carry over this momentum with all the planning this year into 2022.”

RiverFest is a community celebration of the Columbia River. It has traditionally included hands on education with dozens of exhibitors.

The event highlights the benefits to the Northwest this natural resource provides in areas of agriculture, carbon free energy, transportation, commerce and recreation. Nearly 4,500 people attended the last Riverfest in 2019.

After last year's cancelation, the chamber and its affiliates produced the "Our Rivers, Our Life" documentary, which was premiered Oct. 28, as a way to celebrate the Columbia River system.
