What would a festival be without good food?

Food and snacks will be served daily from 11:00 until closing. The prices are of course adapted to students, in other words you do not have to bring your own lunch for over a week!                  
If it gets colder in the evening, we have a Pub tent where there is room for all visitors!

Have a freshly prepared snack, a good drink and enjoy that spring is finally here.

The Festival's Tent Parties

The entertainment at the River Festival is like the icing on the cake.

Karaoke nights and live music is promised. There will be something for everyone and every night there will be new entertainment. Lots of artists will perform!

Discover the Activity area

Of course there will be lots of fun activities to do every day!

Try all the activities with your friends, or meet new ones there! The first week there will be a Obstacle coarse and the second week there will be Sumo wresteling. In addition to that, there will be case stacking, cotton candy and other small activities throughout the festival.

Swing by the Construction site

The construction site at the river festival is where the rafting begins. In the organized chaos on site, you can witness rafters from all corners of Uppsala as they build their crazy creations. These will later carry the rafters down the merciless waters of the Fyris river streaming through the city center.

The construction site is found on the Ångström laboratory grounds, between house 6 and 8 - the creativity found here is difficult to encounter anywhere else. A piece of plastic foam and some lumber may turn into a volcano, a house, a car, or perhaps even a sauna! There is also plenty of paint available to really make the rafts pop.

On site, 120 rafts will be built by roughly 500 people, so be prepared to spend a couple of hours during your visits - it’s a challenge in itself to leave the site and head home. As we all know, the last week of April is the perfect start of spring time, so why not spend it with The Rafting committee and all the rafters? It doesn’t matter if you’re not rafting yourself, whoever you are very welcome to drop by and hang out.

So head on over to the construction site, build the best/prettiest/extravagant raft (or find your favorite!) and then see whether or not the raft makes it the whole way through the waters of the Fyris river on April 30th. This is something you don’t want to miss!
