Horseshoe Riverbend Festival
Clifton has been the home of the Horseshoe Riverbend Festival since 1982, and has welcomed visitors from across the world annually every second weekend in September. The Clifton Rotary Club sponsors the Festival and uses the funds raised to support numerous local, state, national, and international charities. The Horseshoe Riverbend Festival has evolved into a three day event. Beginning on Thursday afternoon, a children's night along with a carnival and family centered events are held, and starting on Friday afternoon, vendors offer wonderful food and artisanal products for you to peruse while listening to live entertainment. As the evening wears on, the music is geared toward younger generations, dancing into the night. All day Saturday is the main event; with music and entertainment all day, capping the event off with a spectacular fireworks show and well recognized artists playing their hit songs. Our 'little' festival has doubled the population of Wayne County during the weekend after Labor Day for past several years as we close off Main Street to hold more than 15,000 visitors. We would love to see you at this year's event! You can follow the festival announcements on Facebook by clicking on the following image and adding the event to your Likes.
