“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.
Our team has interacted with hundreds of people on each day of the festival and are growing awareness for the Fallen 5. The truck with all the lights has drawn in so many people who ask all about the mission. Most importantly people are remembering the Fallen 5 – and that’s what it is all about!
A huge thank you to US 101 who made room for our truck to be displayed! Without their support many people would have missed out on seeing how Chattanoogans come together in a time of need. Stay tuned as we update everyone on our progress to fly the flag once again off the Golden Gate Bridge!
