Riverfest is excited to announce that the multi-platinum CMA and ACM award winning recording artist Tracey Lawrence will be the featured headliner at the 2014 Festival. Tracy Lawrence will take the main stage as the headlining event on Saturday, September 6, 2014. The concert is free and open to the public.

Tracy Lawrence is one of the most recognizable voices in Country music with songs such as “Paint Me A Birmingham,” “Time Marches On,” “Alibis,” and “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.” The entertainer has enjoyed twenty-two songs on the Billboard top ten charts with eighteen number one singles, selling over thirteen million albums.

“We are very excited to be bringing Grammy Award winning artist, Tracy Lawrence to this year’s Riverfest,” said Jennifer Byard, Festival Director. “He has so many number one hits that even if you are not a country music fan, you’ll recognize his songs.”

The City of Clarksville’s 27th Annual Riverfest Celebration is a two-day music and arts festival that takes place September 5 & 6, 2014 alongside the Cumberland River at McGregor Park. This free event features delicious food, activities for kids of all ages including Toddler Town and the Adventure Zone. Riverfest features multiple stages of live entertainment from some of Clarksville’s most talented musicians as well as Saturday night’s headliner, National recording Artist Tracy Lawrence.


Everyone’s favorite, the Riverfest Regatta, is back again this year to see who will claim the title of the fastest boat built out of cardboard, duct tape and silicone. The Riverfest Art Exhibit kicks off on Thursday night this year with the Downtown Art Walk and includes three different categories of art from local talent that you won’t want to miss. New this year is the Riverfest Film Festival, a chance for both novice and expert film makers to showcase their talents on the big screen using predetermined lines and props in their seven minute movies.
