Riverdays is coming to New Richmond

Small Town America…is still the “Real Thing”

Small towns appear to be disappearing, when in fact they are “alive & well in America”.

Technology and easy access to global information has provided the means to promote and expose our town to the region, the country and the world.

Small towns all over the USA represent the core character of America.

New Richmond’s location on the Ohio River bank adds a hint of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer nostalgia to the mix.

The New Richmond on the OHIO Cardboard Boat Regatta & the three day RiverDays event epitomizes that Home Town American Character and Charm bringing families from the Tri-State together for a weekend of unusual and unique river competition and celebration.
