WICHITA, Kansas – On Tuesday, Wichita Festivals Inc. announced that Blacktop Nationals will be incorporated into Riverfest 2016.
Blacktop Nationals, which is presented by Ford, is a large-scale event that draws car enthusiasts of all ages and has been held annually since 2010.
The show is set to take place on the final three days of Riverfest June 9th through June 11th.
A Riverfest button will be required for admission to the Blacktop Nationals.
President and CEO of Wichita Festivals Inc., Mary Beth Jarvis said, “We are very excited about this pairing. Gearheads and all who love Blacktop Nationals can celebrate the fact that great food, entertainment and other Riverfest activities will be available to add to their car-show experience.”
Blacktop Nationals had previously been in August and WFI believes the move to early June will mean more amenable weather as well.
