Vendor Applications Now Open for Final Riverfest

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The City of Clarksville announced today that vendor applications are now open for the 34th and final Riverfest, which will take place on September 8th and 9th at McGregor Park. 

Riverfest is an annual celebration of the Cumberland River that has been a staple of the Clarksville community for over three decades. This year's festival promises to be a memorable one, as it marks the end of an era.

"While it's sad to see Riverfest come to an end, we're excited to close out this chapter with a bang," said Mayor Joe Pitts. "For over 30 years, Riverfest has been a cornerstone of the Clarksville community, and we're proud of all that it's accomplished. We're looking forward to seeing everyone come out and celebrate one last time."

Riverfest has become known for its live music, delicious food, and family-friendly activities. This year's festival will feature a variety of local and regional performers, as well as a diverse selection of food and craft vendors.

The start of something new

While this will be the final Riverfest, Mayor Pitts confirmed that plans are underway for a new event next year. "We're excited to see what the future holds," he said. "We want to create an event that continues to bring the community together, and we will welcome public input in the coming months as we begin planning for next year."

Vendor applications for the final Riverfest are now open, and interested parties can apply online at the official Riverfest website. Applications will be accepted through June 19.
