Riverfest by the numbers

Posted By on Mon, May 25, 2009 at 2:43 PM

A report from the Riverfest organization on this year's event:

We had an attendance of 200,000 people over the weekend.  We had 85,000 on both Friday and Saturday night (total of 170,000).  Our Sunday attendance was 30,000.   In comparison, the total attendance from 2008 was 253,000.  Typically Sunday is our highest attendance day so you can see that we were on pace to set a record attendance.  However, Sunday's weather just didn't cooperate, but even with it being a very rainy day, 30,000 people still attended the festival.
