Music, Food, Fireworks and Fun!

Celebrate this 4th of July with a bang by going to Kansas City’s Riverfront Tradition! With a lineup of amazing music to start the night off and street performers to entertain, you won’t want to miss this year’s Independence Day celebration.

Located at Richard L. Berkley Riverfront, KC RiverFest is THE place to be to see an astounding firework show that you won’t be able to see anywhere else. Not only the fireworks but the food, music, street performers, and kids activities are all included in the admission.
