Come join thousands of people who love to have fun in the sun! Each summer a group of young professionals take a vacant downtown lot and transform it into a full fledged beach themed venue - complete with 2,000 tons of sand, tiki huts, real palm trees and more. This forms On the River…one of the most dynamic summer festivals in the region. The event boasts three distinct parts: Teen Night, Family Day and the ever-popular 21+ Beach Bash. Live entertainment, food, fireworks, volleyball, and excitement are just a few of the things you’ll find on the beach in downtown South Bend.
