Shiverfest 2022

Saturday, October 15th

It’s Baaaa-aaaack! Our super fun celebration of all things fall and Riverbend returns!!

We know you’ve missed it and we’ve missed it too.

Shiverfest is Riverbend’s largest community based-event packed with fun fall activities for the whole family.     

  • Pony rides   
  • Fall arts and crafts   
  • Trick-or-treat trail   
  • Insect shows and entertainment
  • Vending from delicious food trucks
  • Haunted attractions for monsters of all ages   
  • And much more! See our schedules below for Daytime and After Dark Activities.

Join us for this frighteningly fun, family friendly event!

Shiverfest is Riverbend's opportunity to raise awareness and funding to further our mission to educate and empower our community through a direct connection with nature. Students around the region benefit from Riverbend’s nature-based STEM programs annually.  Environmental know-how is essential for the next generation to thrive in a rapidly changing world.

Thank you all for making this a wonderful event! See you next year!
