The Mt. Vernon River Days Committee is happy to announce that we are in the planning stages of River Days 2021!  In light of the continued uncertainties of the pandemic; while eager to provide an event that has become so beneficial to our community, we are planning a 2-day event to be held on Friday and Saturday, September 10-11th, 2021.  Although this year’s event may look a little different than our traditional River Days festival, we are excited to bring back this hometown favorite event and know the community is as well. We want to thank all the food and craft vendors who have already committed to participating this year and know that more will be joining us as well. 

Obviously, due to the ever changing and unforeseen COVID restrictions, some demonstrations, activities & entertainment may not be able to take place this year as they have in past; however, the committee is working to incorporate as much as we possibly can for 2021 even if the schedule is altered from the norm.  For their 12th year, Smoke on the Ohio BBQ Competition will again be partnering with River Days. 

If you are interested in setting up a vendor booth, provide entertainment or an activity, we would love to hear from you at or (812) 483-2922!  Also, if you would like to be a part of the Mt. Vernon River Days Committee, please contact us as well! 

We will be posting the latest information and updates as we receive them here or on our website  See you in September!
