Each summer, Wabash Riverfest brings the community together to celebrate the longest free-flowing river in the eastern United States. Learn about and enjoy Indiana’s Wabash River through conservation exhibits, games and activities, canoes races, and adult and kid runs. Wabash Riverfest is specifically designed to enhance children’s appreciation of Greater Lafayette’s most-prized natural resource, the Wabash River.
Wabash Riverfest is sponsored by the Wabash River Enhancement Corporation, devoted to improving environmental and economic prosperity in the Greater Lafayette Region and the Wabash River corridor in a sustainable manner. The Wabash River is the heart of the Greater Lafayette community. It provides enormous potential for recreation, aesthetic beauty, and vital economic development.
