Riverfest organizers announced that the 2019 festival, set for Friday May 10th and Saturday May 11th, will be implementing some enhanced offerings to make the event inviting for the entire family. The FREE family-friendly event will have expanded kids’ activities, a juried arts and crafts show, food vendors that highlight local restaurants, and more activities that highlight Vicksburg’s assets.

Daytime activities include Burt Fleming with WoodBCreations Unique Chainsaws Sculptures, the trackless train, Frank the Camel, Ricky Nobile Caricatures, a magician and merchant sidewalk sales.

“This is Vicksburg’s festival and we want Vicksburg to come back downtown and enjoy all the offerings,” said Dean Anderson, Riverfest board president. “The entire point of Riverfest was for us to have a festival that celebrated Vicksburg.
