Riverfest on Tour!, the annual month-long celebration of Ohio’s greatest resource, water, is offering free activities for families throughout the month of July in central Ohio. Riverfest on Tour! is a service of The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC).
The tenth annual Riverfest on Tour! is a celebration of central Ohio’s rivers and waterways, educating the public about the vital role waterways play in the community. Viewing the shore from the seat of a canoe or catching a fish- these are the experiences that help people develop a lifelong attachment to the natural heritage of our region. Riverfest on Tour! extends to people of all income levels the ability to participate in these activities free of charge and to develop a connection and commitment to our natural resources.
