Waltham Riverfest 2019 Sponsored by:


Sponsored by the Waltham Land Trust



Saturday, June 16, 3 - 4:30 pm


Meet at the green benches in the northwest corner of the Moody Street bridge behind the granite Blue Heron Trail column.


Celebrate and learn about the mighty Charles at the 10th Annual Waltham Riverfest with an easy stroll along the Charles. Traveling on the paved Blue Heron pathway, we’ll head upstream from Moody Street and hear how what was once an ugly industrial area became the beautiful Upper Charles River Reservation.


As we cross over the Prospect Street bridge, we’ll discuss famous residents of the Mt. Feake cemetery (currently including a pair of American bald eagles), the popular canoeing and entertainment venues along the river where big bands regularly played in bygone times, and contributions the Waltham Watch Factory made to the American Industrial Revolution and the Waltham community.


All day long, festival attendees can soak up live music on multiple stages, observe artists painting along the river, buy crafts from vendors on a closed Moody Street Bridge, enjoy kids activities, and rent canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards for cruising the river.
