2016 Rossford Riverfest
Update: Thank you to everyone that attended the 2016 Rossford Riverfest at Veteran’s Memorial Park. Details for the 2017 event are coming soon. Information from the 2016 event is listed below.
The Rossford Business Association (RBA) and the Rossford Recreation Department will host the Fifth Annual Rossford Riverfest. Rossford Riverfest includes fireworks, a kids’ zone with carnival games and inflatables, and a softball tournament hosted by the Rossford Community Recreation Center.
Live music will be provided from 7:00-11:00. There will also be a 21-and-over beer garden starting at 6:00, and plenty of festival food concessions options. Proceeds from the $1 admission fee for the Beer Garden will go toward the annual RBA scholarships awarded to local high school students. We will also have a Dunking Booth, 6-9pm. Proceeds from the dunking booth will also go to the scholarship fund, in the hopes of adding a third scholarship for the upcoming school year.
Parking will be available at Eagle Point Elementary School, with overflow parking at Rossford High School if needed. A shuttle service will be provided, compliments of the Rossford Schools, from 6:00-11:30 p.m.
“The Rossford Business Association is thrilled to be a part of providing a fun-filled event for the city of Rossford,” said Justin Knierem, RBA president. “Rossford Riverfest is a chance for us to give back to the community that supports our member businesses.” The RBA is also coordinating the fundraising for the fireworks, with this year’s goal set at $9,000.
