Hayes’ music is both a reflection of his influences and a product of his prodigious multi-instrumental talents, reflected by the fact that he plays every instrument on his records.

“We considered all the options, and unfortunately, with rising prices everywhere, it was a tough decision, but we knew to continue the legacy of what Riverfest means for our community, we needed to raise the button price,” said Nancy Duling President and CEO of Wichita Festivals. “The cost of doing business has increased, and we want to do everything we can to keep the festival unique and a time- honored tradition in Wichita.”

Riverfest is proud to be one of the longest-running festivals in the state. It is celebrating its 52nd year and creating generational memories for Wichita.

“We hear all the time about cherished memories families have shared while experiencing the festival,” said Duling. “People come for the Sundown Parade and enjoy the fireworks shows while taking in the concerts and all the events all week long. The memories that are made with a purchase of a button last for a lifetime.”
