About the 2015 Yonkers Riverfest

The Yonkers Riverfest started 23 years ago to celebrate our city and was one of the many catalysts that helped transform Downtown Yonkers into the vibrant, beautiful waterfront community we have today. This summer, Downtown Yonkers had more free concerts, events, kids’ shows, outdoor movies, and farmers’ markets than anywhere else in Westchester County. Thousands of people visited Downtown to enjoy great food, world class events, and breathtaking views of the Hudson River. The Yonkers Downtown BID has continued to build on our partnerships with the City of Yonkers and our sponsors to make the 2015 Yonkers Riverfest exceptional.
