First aid: Riverfest has two first aid stations on site sponsored by St. Vincent Health System: one located near the amphitheater and one at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock.

Riverfest Recycles: Riverfest Recycles encourages festivalgoers to recycle plastic bottles and aluminum cans, which are typically just discarded. Festivalgoers can stop by the recycling tent, located on the walkway behind the Museum Center between the First Security Amphitheater 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 festivalgoers are asked to make use of the numerous recycling containers located throughout the park. After hours, the Riverfest recycling committee and volunteers, along with the Little Rock Parks and Recreation Department, will retrieve cans and plastic bottles from recycling containers, and any cans that may not have made it to the containers.
