What is River Fest?

Big River Gospel Fest, Gospel Music Concert, Gulf Coast, Florida Panhandle, Outdoor Music Festival

River Fest is a one day Outdoor, Sporting & Recreation Festival in the heart of the Florida panhandle.

Presented by the Calhoun County Community Foundation, the one day event hosts visitors from across the Southeast and features live music, vendors, and more. The event is held AT NEAL LANDING ON THE SOUTH END OF RIVER STREET IN THE CITY OF BLOUNTSTOWN, WITH OUR "ROCK THE RIVER" CONCERT CLOSING OUT THE NIGHT OVER at the BHS Football Stadium, Bowles Field.

The Calhoun County Community Foundation (CCCF) was founded in 2019 as a way to assist the rural communities of Calhoun County, Florida following the devastation caused by Hurricane Michael on October 10, 2018. It is a 501 c3 non profit organization.

All monies raised go back into the communities to directly benefit our citizens and support community pride. The organization also serves the community by promoting all that Calhoun County has to offer.
