The Stevens Point Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department is saddened to share the unfortunate news announcing the cancellation of the 36th Riverfront Rendezvous community festival for 2020.
After evaluating the latest information from local, state, and federal officials and health organizations, the planning committee feels this is the best decision for our community in order to protect the health of our dedicated festival patrons while slowing the spread of COVID-19.
Riverfront Rendezvous is a 36-year family tradition that has thrived on the support of local businesses, volunteer organizations, and community members since its inception. The health and safety of our community, along with the amount of advanced planning, contracts, financial impacts, and the large mass of people it attracts weighed into this decision.
Our team fully recognizes this decision will impact numerous community organizations, local businesses, and families who depend on our festival for fundraising and entertainment over the July 4th holiday weekend. With that in mind, we are taking steps to implement a plan to make the 2021 Riverfront Rendezvous an even stronger event to bring together our great community and region!
Please mark your calendars for July 2, July 3 and July 4 of 2021 when our fabulous family festival is planned to return!
