Act fast and you can get yourself a Riverfest pass for only $10

  • Riverfest is offering $10 tickets for a limited time.

Think about all the stuff you spend $10 on without thinking too much about it: Lunch, a six-pack, a movie ticket, scratch-offs, a grandisimo frozen chai pumpkin whatever.

Here's one more you can add to the list, if you get a move on: Riverfest tickets.

The folks behind the biggest music festival in the state have made a limited number of tickets available for only 10 bones. For you math-inclined types, that's a saving of $25 per ticket over the gate price.

Here's the thing, though — when they're gone they're gone. That might be March 22, the deadline for the discounted tickets. Or it could be when they sell out of the allotment. It's whichever comes first.

I know, I know — they haven't announced the lineup yet and maybe you're holding out, but come on. You know you're going to go. Why not save $25, which you could use to buy lunch, a six-pack and a couple scratch-offs.

The $10 tickets are available here. There's a press release with more details after the jump.

Beginning Monday, Riverfest is releasing a limited block of $10 tickets to the general public for the 2013 Memorial Day weekend event.

Up to four tickets per person may be purchased at this special rate, available through Friday, March 22, or until they sell out — whichever occurs first. They are available for purchase exclusively online at

“This limited number of tickets has been set aside at a greatly reduced rate to make it even more affordable for families to take part in Arkansas’ largest festival,” said DeAnna Korte, Riverfest executive director. “But when they are gone, they are gone, so the public is encouraged to act quickly.”

As in previous years, half-price tickets will be available at Walgreen’s stores beginning April 1 for $17.50. The 2013 gate price of admission is $35. Children 6 and under are free.

Musical acts, special attractions and other family-friendly entertainment details will be announced later this spring.
