2010 Riverfest Changes

Kerry Kraus


Memorial Day Weekend is still quite some time away but it’s never too early to start planning for your holiday weekend. If attending Riverfest in Little Rock and North Little Rock is on your agenda, then you need to know of a few changes that will take place this year.

Ticket prices are going up, with advance tickets now $15 instead of $12.50. Gate prices will increase from $25 to $30.

In addition, the North Little Rock side of the annual kick-off-to-summer event will have all free events but no headliner entertainment. Among the new activities will be the launching of hot air balloons, a 5K race/walk, and an entertainment stage.

Also new this year are two “pre-Riverfest” events taking place: a chalk art competition and a wine tasting.  Both will be held on April 18 at the River Market Pavilions in downtown Little Rock

Dates for 2010 Riverfest  are May 28-30 and, as usual, the festivities will take place in Little Rock’s Riverfront Park and North Little Rock’s North Shore Riverwalk.
