KC RiverFest is the premiere Independence Day event in the region. It is a celebration of the Missouri River and the organizations that work to make the Kansas City Riverfront a special place for all to enjoy.

Since 2005, KC RiverFest 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.

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