Dive Into Arkansas Riverfest 2016!

May 9, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Arkansas' 39th annual Riverfest PosterArkansas’ 39th annual Riverfest moves from Memorial Day weekend for the first time in the festival’s history, scheduled for June 3 – 5, 2016 in downtown Little Rock.

Riverfest is Arkansas’ largest and most popular music, arts, and food festival, bringing dozens of big name and regional performers to the area, not to mention thousands of eager fans. This year’s jaw-dropping lineup is set to include The Goo Goo Dolls, The Flaming Lips, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, among others

Organizers moved Riverfest from its traditional, Memorial Day Weekend date in order to keep it from conflicting with people’s vacation plans – a change eagerly greeted by many fans of this popular, annual event that, after nearly 40 years, has become a cherished tradition for many.

Outside of scheduling, little else about the event has changed. Performers will once again entertain the crowds from multiple stages in Riverfront Park and the grounds of the Clinton Presidential Center. Vendors and merchants will be on hand with arts, goods, food and beverages while “Flowing on the River,” Riverfest’s separate wine and craft beer event, kicks off the festivities.
