Kipona Food Trucks, Fireworks & Virtual Activities
This event has expired and is here for your information.
Join the City of Harrisburg for Kipona 2020! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this annual festival has been modified to feature a hybrid of in-person and virtual activities. The in-person activities include 15 food trucks offering some of your festival favorites on Saturday, September 5 from 3-8pm on City Island followed by fireworks at 8:15pm. Take the food home to enjoy or spread out along Riverfront Park or City Island with a socially distanced picnic.
We encourage you to bring your own chairs and blankets if you plan to picnic or watch fireworks, both of which can be enjoyed from miles of space along the riverfront while socially distancing. Food trucks will have cones placed 6-ft apart for line formation and hand washing stations will be available. Masks are required for anyone over age 2 to enter the food truck area. A full list of health safety measures is available on the event website.
There will be virtual activities September 5-7, including an online marketplace to shop handcrafted wares, specialty foods and other products. There will also be virtual performances from local bands, kids activities, artisan demonstrations and more. Whether you visit a food truck, purchase from our online marketplace or send a Venmo tip to a musician offering a virtual performance, WE THANK YOU! Your support of these small businesses is much appreciated during these unprecedented times.
