The Beloit Riverfest was an annual music festival held in July at Riverside Park in Beloit, Wisconsin. The festival attracted thousands of people from the Midwest, who came to see internationally known musicians perform. It billed itself as "the largest rock festival of the Midwest".[citation needed] In addition to music, the festival had a carnival, shops, and food vendors. Riverfest was held the second week of July and ran from Thursday through Sunday.

The Riverfest Board of Directors voted to discontinue the festival in 2013 because of reduced financial support and difficulty in recruiting new board members.[1]
