Friends of the Festival is very pleased to announce the return of the "Riverfront Nights" musical series to the city's 21st Century Waterfront for its eighth year.
Once again, presented by BlueCross /BlueShield of Tennessee, the series of free Saturday night shows will feature exciting musical acts performing from the Zaxby's Stage.
Healthy living, healthy food and drink choices, adult beverages and businesses and organizations that promote sustainable development in the Scenic City will line the venue's borders in a vibrant display of educational entertainment with the beautiful Tennessee River as its backdrop. Riverfront Nights is family friendly and dog friendly as well.
Meet us at the river each Saturday in late summer, you won't be sorry!
