RCA 2018 River Ramble

July 14 at 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

 


48th RCA River Ramble!

Saturday, July 14 from 11am-3pm in Pinkney Park


Don’t miss one of Rowayton’s most cherished events; the 48th annual River Ramble! This annual tradition brings our community together at one of the town’s most treasured landmarks, Pinkney Park.

For kids and young adults, there is a wide selection of exciting games and activities such as the petting zoo, pony rides, bouncy castle, giant water slide, face painting and the always entertaining dunk tank. 

Entertainment for the adults includes a wide variety of local vendors selling art, accessories, jewelry, gifts and Rowayton logo gear. Our live and silent auctions feature items you can’t get anywhere else!

The food tent by Pinkney House features our famous raw bar, hamburgers, hot dogs, corn and more. Wash it all down with a cold beer, wine, juice or soda while music and laughter fill the air.

In addition to being a fun-filled afternoon, the River Ramble is one of the RCA’s largest fundraisers and the proceeds from this event help to finance many of our other community events, including the Memorial Day Parade, Fireworks, Soccer, Summer Music Festival, Swim Races, Halloween Celebration and the Nativity Pageant. Our fundraising activities also allow us to grant funds to our schools and other local non-profit groups. The Live and Silent Auction at the River Ramble are critical to this important fundraising event.
