Yonkers RiverFest stage

The 2018 Yonkers Riverfest will take place September 15, from noon to 7 p.m., on the Hudson riverfront along Main Street and Buena Vista Avenue. It is being presented by the Yonkers Downtown Business Improvement District.

Now celebrating its 26th year, this free, rain-or-shine event has become more than a festival, organizers say. It’s a time to reunite with friends and family and discover all that Yonkers has to offer. Typically some 25,000 people gather downtown to attend Riverfest, one of the biggest events in Westchester.

Riverfest will feature more than 100 vendors selling food, art, accessories, clothing, jewelry, books and other items; a kids’ carnival with a carousel and Ferris wheel; and an artist pavilion showcasing more than 20 local artists.
