Riverfest 2012 will mark the 35th anniversary of the state’s largest family festival. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Riverfest, along with Bruce Cochran and Custom Beverage, will host a wine tasting event and art auction on Thursday, May 24th in the River Market Pavilions from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Proceeds from the event will be used to fund a Riverfest Scholarship offered through the Thea Foundation. Past Riverfest Festival and Board Chairmen will be honored, along with the Junior League of Little Rock for founding Riverfest 35 years ago, and for their 90 years of service to the community.
The mission of Riverfest, Inc. is to produce a quality, recreational, cultural, educational, family-oriented celebration of the visual and performing arts for the benefit of the community. In keeping with the mission of the festival, Riverfest, Inc. has given back over $1 million to the cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock for various improvements to their riverfront park areas.
