    Why is WRER trying to rename Potomac River Festival to River Fest? It’s been the Potomac RIver Festival since it began and RIver Fest is used by areas all around us for separate events.

      Hi Suzy,

      My apologies – This was not an attempt to rename the festival. We have Bikefest and Waterfest, so it was a natural thing to shorten the name of the 70th Annual Potomac River Festival to ‘Riverfest’. I have updated the post with the correct title. We all make mistakes, it was not intentional. – Ted
