2017 Rossford Riverfest
The Rossford Business Association (RBA) and the Rossford Recreation Department will host the Sixth 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.
Rossford Riverfest and Chautauqua Rossford 2017 will be held in conjunction this year. Chautauqua will run from July 19-23, with Rossford Riverfest being held on Saturday, July 22, 2017.
