Riverfront Nights returns this weekend for a six-week run (with a break Aug. 25 for the Southern Brewers Festival) featuring a lively lineup of headliners and some of Chattanooga’s best bands opening each Saturday evening show.
Produced by Friends of the Festival (the entertainment arm of Riverbend) and Chattanooga’s Parks and Recreation Department, Riverfront Nights has become a summer staple and a bookend to the Riverbend Festival each year.
In addition to the music, Outdoor Chattanooga sponsors “On the Green” during each concert, which features outdoor activities such as disc golf and and soccer. All shows are child- and pet-friendly, although coolers are not allowed. Doors open and beer sales begin at 6:30 p.m. Local opening bands start at 7 p.m. with headliners at 8 p.m.
