Description of Organization
The Neches River Festival, Inc., is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation, organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, to  promote a sense of community identity and heritage as well as the education of local students through community events, and through regular contributions to the Otho-Plummer/Neches River Festival Scholarship at Lamar University.
The purpose of the Neches River Festival is to honor our local high school seniors. The festival has been in existence since 1949 and we will be celebrating our 72nd year. This year’s Festival theme of “The River is Calling” will celebrate our shared region, rich in history and resources.  
Beginning in 1949, the Neches River became the focal point for this community to celebrate our high school youth during the Neches River Festival.  That tradition continues and each year lifetime memories are made by the Festival participants as they close the chapters of their youth and prepare for exciting futures,  The Festival season will also include a River/Service day which highlights important aspects of our community—economic, environmental, social and cultural.  Continuing a tradition started a few years ago, Festival participants will “connect and serve” by collecting and donating children’s books to promote reading and literacy in our community.    These books will be placed in existing Royal Book Nooks across our city.   Two new nooks will be created in honor of NRF 72 and will be installed in new public sites.  
Neches River Festival provides a cultural, educational and civic opportunity for participating students, and is open to anyone, regardless of ethnicity or financial background.  We are proud of our diverse group of student participants each year who represent each high school in Beaumont, Texas.
