Riverfest 2016

Each year Clarksvillians are treated to Riverfest, the arts and recreation celebration that sprawls along the banks of the Cumberland River. It is now in its 29th year and recently attracted 25,000 people, according to Event Planning Supervisor Robert Rayburn of Clarksville Parks + Recreation Department, which organizes the event.

“Riverfest was truly fun and very successful this year,” Rayburn said. “Our goal is to bring out the Clarksville community and showcase what our city has to offer with businesses, organizations, arts and cultural.”

Rayburn was supported by a fabulous team: Kara Zahn, Channel Lemon, Shane Rye, Bethany Benjamin, Michelle Austin and Candice Tillman.

Clarksville’s longest-running community festival, Riverfest, included a performance by CMA and Grammy nominee Brandy Clark as well as performances by local m

usicians. It also featured a 52-Hour Film Festival, a Juried Art Show and a Human Foosball Tournament.
