Chestertown RiverArts and Washington College Center for Environment & Society and SANDBOX are launching RiverFest, a new, annual event on Saturday, September 26 that will celebrate art and the environment and culminate in the lighting of a large, floating, solar-powered sculpture on the Chester River at sunset.
Leading up to the lighting of the sculpture, Wilmer Park will be filled with music, activities for families, artist vendors, environmental displays and sail and paddle vendors from
12:00 to 5:00. Water activities will include kayak races, a poker run, and the 9th annual Washington College Cardboard Boat Regatta which has drawn over 1000 visitors in past years.
