June 9-17: Riverbend Festival in Chattanooga, TN

By Matt Diehl • June 08, 2017

Celebrating its 35th Anniversary, the Riverbend Festival is returning to Chattanooga for eight nights starting Friday, June 9. Held on the shores of the Tennessee River, this award-winning festival offers food, shopping and a wide variety of music. In fact, Riverbend will feature more than 100 bands including country, rock, pop and urban artists. Bands will perform on five different stages throughout Ross’s Landing, known to the locals as “the Scenic City’s front porch.”

Ranked in the top 10% of all American festivals, Riverbend draws over 350,000 visitors per year and up to 90,000 per night.1 The International Festivals and Events Association has recognized the festival several times, including seven awards in 2015 alone.2 In addition to a first-rate music lineup, other attractions include carnival games, a 5k/10k fun run and fireworks spectacular to close the event.

As a proud sponsor of the Riverbend Festival for nearly a decade, OneMain employees look forward to participating each year. Heath Davis, Branch Manager of the Hixson Pike branch, is excited to be part of one of Chattanooga's premier events once again:

“[We] set up one of the better tents and typically have between 4-7 volunteers serving the crowd at any given time. Team members will be talking about OneMain and handing out giveaways. The last two years we gave away fans that were shaped like guitars which were a big hit. As for volunteers, our branch will be joined by all of the Chattanooga area branches as well as Cookeville and Crossville.”

When asked what he looks forward to the most, Davis provided a list of his Riverbend favorites: “Talking to people at our tent, foods on a stick, funnel cake and the firework celebration that ends the festival.”
