Patrons may leave and re-enter the festival as many times as they wish throughout the weekend. Wristband must be visible and without damage to gain re-entry, though.

Blankets and folding chairs are welcome. What isn’t welcome?

No coolers, containers, cans, food or glass bottles, laser pointers, camelbacks, audio recording devices, professional photography equipment, cameras with detachable lenses, video recorders, skateboards, bicycles, rollerblades, motorized vehicles of any type, large cane umbrellas or umbrellas with a point, concealed weapons of any type may be brought into Riverfest. All bags/backpacks will be subject to a security search.

You can help recycle!

Festivalgoers can stop by the recycling tent, located on the walkway behind the Museum Center between the Riverfest Amphitheatre and the Clinton Library, and pick up a recycling bag. While enjoying Riverfest, attendees are encouraged to fill their recycling bags with at least 20 recyclable items and return it to the Recycling Tent for a chance to win a prize. With each full bag returned to the Recycling Tent, attendees earn a chance to spin the prize wheel. Prizes on the wheel include T-shirts, hats, corndogs, and many more fun prizes, including a few premium prizes. In addition to collecting recyclables, all festival-goers are asked to make use of the numerous recycling containers located throughout the park.
