The Riverbend Festival, or called Riverbend (named for the bend in the Tennessee River) by locals, was started in June 1982 as a five night festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee. We are now celebrating over 35 years as Chattanooga’s premier event. The annual festival now goes on for eight nights and ranks in the top 10% of all American festivals. The International Festivals and Events Association has presented the festival with several awards, including 7 in 2015. Attendance continues to grow for the festival and now some individual nights attract 90,000 people, with 350,000 people attending over the 8 day period. There’s a wide variety of performers covering almost every music genre that perform at the festival. The 5 stages set along the backdrop of the Tennessee River at Ross’s Landing, also known as the Scenic City’s front porch.
General Admission wristbands allow admission to the festival for all nights. Children 10 and under are admitted free with an adult.
