New Milford Riverfest
Throughout New Milford’s history the Housatonic River and its waterfront have played a key role in residents’ lives.
Revitalizing the riverfront is the ambitious goal of a long-term plan to enhance our quality of life and the town’s economic vitality.
RiverFest is a celebration of community and a time to gather with friends and family. Taking place along the banks of Housatonic River in New Milford, CT – gateway to Litchfield County –and our historic Downtown Village Center, with its popular restaurants and diverse retail offerings, it will highlight the heart of our community. Together Downtown and the Riverfront are envisioned as a vibrant hub of commerce, recreation, entertainment and residential life by the Riverfront Revitalization Committee, organizers of this exciting event.
Admission is free. Attractions include:
Live music and entertainment
Food trucks and local food vendors
Beer and Wine Garden
Arts and crafts vendors
Guided walks along the envisioned One-Mile “Down to the River” walk
Riverfest is a self-funded, volunteer-run festival that provides annual entertainment, food, drink and fun for the Greater New Milford Community.
The festival is dependent on sponsorships and donations from community businesses, organizations and folks just like you.
