Riverdays is back August 1 – 3

Your Midland Area Community Foundation is proud to bring Riverdays back to Downtown Midland for 2019. It’s a longstanding summer festival – we’ve been throwing this party every summer for over three decades. We’re joining forces again with the Midland Balloon Festival team, bringing several fun, unique hot air balloons to Chippewassee Park throughout the weekend. Also new this year: a “silent dance” party (think rocking out with your friends, except you all have headphones on synced to the same tunes). Several concerts are on tap throughout the weekend, as well as a beer and wine tent on Friday and Saturday nights. There are free activities and entertainment for all ages. Head to for all the details, and be sure to follow us on Facebook for a good bit of fun. Special thanks to presenting sponsor Fisher Companies as well as Aberro Creative, Midland Brewing Company, and Huntington Bank for their generous support!
