Columbia’s 4th Friday & Riverfest

June 24 - June 26, 2022


Riverfest commemorates the burning of the Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge during the Civil War. On the last Sunday in June 1863, locals prevented Confederate troops from crossing the river and moving toward Harrisburg or Philadelphia. Confederate troops were forced to turn back and just three days later, the Battle of Gettysburg erupted.

Enjoy shopping and dining from 5-8 PM as we kickoff Riverfest weekend. Our theme is fire so enjoy some hot and spicy food from our many cafe’s and restaurants as well as peruse the shops and all they have to offer. Stay the weekend for a line-up of events.
