Riverdale RiverFest is an annual community festival to celebrate the Hudson River and support the Bronx Link of the Hudson Valley Greenway that is under development. It takes place each June on the banks of the Hudson River, on the scenic grounds of the College of Mount Saint Vincent.
The festival is a fun afternoon of outdoor entertainment and environmental education for the community. Participants will have opportunities to take boat rides on the Hudson River, listen to music by local musicians, enjoy an eclectic variety of food, and learn about the Hudson River Greenway and the history, biology and geology of the area. Riverdale RiverFest is produced by the Kingsbridge-Riverdale-Van Cortlandt Development Corporation (KRVC).
