Riverfest is a public, two-day, free event that is held the first weekend in May. The festival spans the entire length of the Riverwalk and includes several parks and features family-friendly activities and events showcasing Tampa’s cultural institutions, local music and restaurants.
Friends of the Riverwalk had hoped to hold Tampa Riverfest in 2021. However, following dialogue with event organizers, city leaders and health care experts, we believe it is best to cancel the event this year. The good news is that Tampa Riverfest 2022 is already on the books for May 6-7. Please mark your calendar because we will be back bigger and better than ever!
