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. We had a particularly strong focus to reflect our city’s diversity in our performances. Almost every kind of music is represented by high-quality, touring bands, including Rock, R&B, Hip-Hop, Motown, Country, Blues, Irish , Jazz and Latin music. We have also increased the number of free activities, games, and rides for kids.
Our main stage features Rock and Hall of Famers Leonard, Coleman, & Blunt former leads singers of The Temptations, The Drifters, and The Platters. The will perform countless all-time classics, such as “Under the Boardwalk”, “My Girl,” “Save the Last Dance for Me,” “Only You,” and “On Broadway”. There will be great food, family games, environmental exhibitions, a break-dancing contest, and over 25 live music performances. The Yonkers Downtown BID is extremely grateful to our sponsors who make this event possible, especially the City of Yonkers and Domino Sugar.
The Yonkers Downtown BID hopes everyone has a wonderful time at the 23rd Annual Yonkers Riverfest.
