From the first festival on October 19, 1985 to today, the City of Richland is always striving to offer programs and events for our citizens in a safe and family-friendly environment and to enhance their quality of life.  Richland is a great place to live and PLAY!

Our HWY 49 Festival is undergoing a change for the future.  We will now be holding two separate events…a Summer Fest and a Fall Fest. The City made this decision first to better use the City’s Funds and second to better use the City’s staffs’ time and energies.   We look forward to bringing something new to our City.
