The largest city on Wisconsin’s Great River celebrates Riverfest La Crosse July 4-7 this year! Riverfest was established in 1983 to create and hold a family festival with “something for everyone”. It’s held annually in Riverside Park, with fireworks, entertainment, food and drink from over 16 area restaurants and other vendors, and much more.

Among the family-friendly activities are the Plein Air Painting Festival, Wild World of Animals, the Southern Bluffs Wizards Jump Rope Club (which sounds like a psychedelic late 60s band), River City Water Skiiers, the Venetian Parade of Lights, and much more.

Headliner Chris Lane plays the North Stage the evening of Thursday, July 5. Check out the full music lineup below!

Kwik Trip sponsors the July 4th Fireworks Extravaganza, which this year actually takes place ON July 4th! It’s the largest fireworks display in the Coulee Region.
