Newport Quay Saturday 19th May – 11am to 3pm
Riverfest is a fun free community event which takes place every May in the heart of the Isle of Wight, Newport, the Island’s capital. The event has all the feel of a traditional village fete, with many free activities for children. Local charities attend promoting the work they do in the community, helping people and the local environment. You can find out about the Island’s unique ecology and discover what lurks in the mud in the Medina river, thanks to the crew from the Medina Valley Centre!
You might also wish to have a paddle in a canoe, but look out for the notorious Crew of the Rose Pirates and the Wolfgaurd Vikings!
There is no entrance fee as the Quay is owned by the IW Council, who support this event by not charging for its use. Riverfest is organised by The Footprint Trust, a local charity, which promotes sustainable living. The event is supported by Community Action IW, Southern Co-Operative, Natural Enterprice, Newport Parish Council, SSE, Vectis Sunrise Rotary.
Young people are at the centre of this event and perform at it and take an active role in many of the organisations taking place.
