Celebrating historic New Castle & Delaware City
The second annual River Towns Ride & Festival is a one-day joint festival held between the two historic Delaware waterfront towns of New Castle and Delaware City. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 4, from noon-5pm.
The two towns are 10 miles apart and connected by the bike-friendly corridor of Route 9. Therefore, the event will feature a bicycling component that will have riders cycling between the two destinations. Competitive cyclists will be encouraged to participate in the River Towns Time Trial for cash and prizes while recreational cyclists can pick their distance and ride for fun or to earn a distance medal.
While cyclists traverse between the two towns, festivals will be held in each town’s main square: The Green in Historic New Castle and Battery Park in Historic Delaware City.
Activities include live music, rides, attractions, games, tours, vendors, food and drink.
A highlight of the event will be a craft beer festival held in each town from noon until 5pm. More than a dozen craft breweries will be participating.
