2019 National Speedboat Races at the Ravenswood Ohio River Festival

The Ravenswood Ohio River Festival Committee has been monitoring the current health crisis COVID-19 pandemic.

With the situation ever changing, and no official guidelines being established for fairs, festivals, and similar events, it is difficult for us to plan. It is also difficult for our vendors to make plans.

Due to not knowing what restrictions will be in place or if we will even be allowed to have mass gatherings, our committee feels the best course of action is to postpone our event until August 6-8, 2021.

The health, safety, and welfare of our citizens, our venders, and our committee are most important to us.

We want to thank everyone for your support and your understanding.

We are currently working with our entertainers to re-schedule them for our 2021 event.

A special thank you to all of our sponsors for working with us so graciously to ensure we always have a successful event.

The following sponsors had already contributed to the 2020 RORF. Each sponsor listed has agreed to have their donations rolled over to the 2021 event:

• K.S. of West Virginia Co. Ltd.

• Warner Kia

• 21 Country Market, Inc.

• Team Enviromental, LLC

• First Federal Savings & Loan

• Ravenswood Drug

• McDonalds of Ravenswood

• Par Mar Stores

• Ravenswood Federal Credit Union

• Perrine & Staunton Family Denistry

• City of Ravenswood

Again we apologize for any inconvenience; however, we plan to return next year bigger and better than ever.
