The day kicked off with some coffee courtesy of the Lander Bake Shop, and open mic performances from local musicians (there was even a keyboard player/singer who performed that happened to be staying in the park while traveling through the area).

MC Murray Ritland was on announcing duties, introducing the rest of the day’s acts, which included: Seth Finley, The Black Poppies, and Sideways Sun.


While folks enjoyed the music throughout the day, there were tons of art booths, raffles and vendors to check out as well, ranging from wire jewelry, woodwork, pottery, paintings, glass blowing, beadwork, laser engraving, and much more.

And did we mention there were puppies?

The Lander Pet Connection was also on site to give the gift of puppy cuddles, and provided folks with the opportunity to look at a litter of pups that will be up for adoption very soon.

“Even given the inclement weather, Lander Art Centers 14th Annual RiverFest was absolutely a success,” commented LAC Outreach Coordinator Oakley Boycott.


“We are so fortunate to live in a community that shows up to support each other and specifically our artists, rain or shine and all day Saturday our artists shone.”
