Hartford’s ‘Riverfest’ Rescheduled to July 18. Move Over Bieber and King

Riverfest, the postponed celebration of the Connecticut River here in Hartford, has been rescheduled to July 18, it has been announced.

That’s the good news. The not-so-good news will be traffic and parking so start working on patience or planning. 

Because it’s also the night that pop star Justin Bieber will be at the XL Center for his sold-out concert and author Stephen King will be at the Bushnell where a large crowd is also expected.

 Forced to cancel the full-blown Riverfest party earlier this month because of unsafe water levels on the Connecticut River, the rescheduled Riverfest will feature only fireworks, beginning at 9:30 p.m.
