River Fest – Muhlenberg’s Food and Music Festival Is Almost Here

by Muhlenberg Township Parks and Recreation Department

Aug 09, 2022

River Fest – Muhlenberg’s Food and Music Festival is almost here. This event is majestically located in Jim Dietrich Park along a trail that follows a bend in the Schuylkill River. There will be two music stages; one electric and one acoustic highlighting local musical talent with the river as its backdrop. In total we have 30+ musical acts scheduled over the three days performing Bluegrass, Classic Rock, Jazz, Country, Indie music and so much more.  A variety of food vendors will be available to dazzle your taste buds.

Some vendors include Scott’s Gyro Box, Norte Sur, Mad J’s BBQ, Two Can Catering and Kettle Corn, Sweet Ride Ice Cream, Spuds, and Festival Island Noodles just to name a few.  There will also be wine, beer and moonshine available to quench the thirst of the 21 and over crowd.  RiverFest will have a soft opening on Friday, August 26 from 5 to 10PM. Friday’s activities will be centered around the farmhouse with music, beer, frozen drinks and food vendors.

On Saturday, August 27 from 11AM to 10PM and Sunday, August 28 from 11AM to 7PM the entire trail will be open with the artisan crafters, direct sale businesses, the Reading Racing Historical Society and more.  We will also be the host site of the sanctioned RiverFest Quoiting Tournament on August 27th.

Any questions about the event, please contact the Township’s Office at 610-929-4727, visit our website at or follow the RiverFest event page on Facebook page.  We would like to thank our title sponsor The Reading Northern Blue Mountain Rail Road. Bring your lawn chairs and we will see you at the River.
