What is Riverfest?

Riverfest is an annual three-day music and arts festival held in Clarksville, Tennessee along the banks of the Cumberland River. This FREE event features delicious food, activities for kids of all ages and multiple stages of live entertainment. Other fun activities include the Riverfest Regatta, Rally on the Cumberland, viewing of the World War II LST, and much more! 

How much does it cost?

Admission to Riverfest is completely free! It's hard to beat three nights of free concerts with dozens of local, regional and national performers. Food and drink are available to purchase, and this year the festival will roll out Riverfest Cashless, powered by Square. Simply bring your credit card or debit card, and leave the hassles of cash at home. Some interactive activities and games may require additional fees.

What should I leave at home?

Riverfest is free because of the generous support of our sponsors and community partners. To remain a free festival, we rely on the sale of food and beverage. Coolers and outside food or beverage (including alcohol) are strictly prohibited.


The Festival has over 30,000 visitors over two-days. To protect your animals, and keep them safe, no animals except service animals are allowed. To find a pet friendly event in the area, check out the Fun with Fido series.


Any violation of the below rules and policies will result in confiscation of items and or immediate expulsion from the festival.




Where do I park?

Free parking will be available at the parking lot on West Avenue. Shuttles taking patrons to Riverfest will run every 30-45 minutes on Saturday only, beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing until 11:15 p.m. View shuttle route here.
