Friends of the River

KCRiverFest is not only the premier Independence Day celebration in the region, it is a celebration of the great Missouri River and the organizations that work to make the Kansas City Riverfront a special place for all of us to enjoy.

Since 2005, KCRiverFest has been organized by Friends of the River – Kansas City (FOR-KC). This not-for-profit organization addresses a   wide variety of interests on the Kansas City Riverfront including history and education; conservation; recreation and entertainment.

KCRiverFest would like to thank all of the great sponsors that make this event possible:
