Rockin’ the River is more than just rock bandsâ€”it is an opportunity for family and friends to celebrate Fort Wayne’s rivers. “For a first-year event, we could not have imagined such immense support and interestâ€”and the entire night of entertainment is free!,” said Mark T. Carboni, entertainment chair for Rockin’ the River.
The IPFW RiverFest is presented by Steel Dynamics in partnership with Fort Wayne Friends of the Rivers. The entire community is invited to the IPFW campus for RiverFest 2010â€”a day of festivity and celebration for one of Fort Wayne’s most prominent natural resources, our rivers. Families can enjoy nature, history, sports, water activities, and art, while music enthusiasts can enjoy performances throughout the day and rock bands in the evening until midnight. This event will stimulate interest in preserving our city’s rivers and support the initiatives of the Fort Wayne Friends of the Rivers.
Other RiverFest events include the RiverWalk/Run; FamilyFest hands-on activities and games; ArtFest Rivers and Bridges of Northeast Indiana Exhibition and Fine Arts and Craft Sale; RiverRaces, RiverRides and RiverShow; RiverFeast food concessions and the YLNI Barr Street Market.
