River Market 2022 Season Pass & Schedule


We just wrapped up our meetings with the Tennessee Aquarium, and included synchronizing their Spring Break schedules for the season and other special activities, and are pleased to share with you the upcoming River Market schedule and Season Pass information.

  • One food truck will be allowed to participate during the River Market each event. If you are interested, then fill out the Season Pass form below and we coordinate with all of the interested providers on a rotating basis. (You will not be paying the full Season Pass amount, instead only the number of days that you are scheduled to participate). Your menu must not conflict with the Tennessee Aquarium’s offerings: no hot dogs, for instance.

  • Arts, crafts, farms and packaged foods are eligible to participate at the River Market, with priority given to returning vendors and by Priority Point seniority if space constraints exist. We currently expect to be back at full capacity this season!

  • The Season Pass is a prepayment of all setup fees for the River Market Season, and provides you with guaranteed access, predetermined booth placement (Reserved Booth) and the ability to setup early. Only vendors with at least 25 Priority Points will be assured a Season Pass, with newer vendors on a case-by-case basis.

  • There are 34 scheduled River Market dates for the 2022 Season x $27 setup fee = $918 for the River Market Season Pass; all events are rain-or-shine, and an additional 10% sales commission is collected at the end of each market day. Special events, such as Head of the Hooch, are not included.

If you are interested in purchasing a River Market Season Pass, then click here to complete the application form. The deadline for applying is Sunday, February 20, 2022. Open Registration for River Market will begin soon thereafter, based on the amount of available space remaining (Total Capacity - Season Passes = Available Spots).

If accepted for a Season Pass, you will be invoiced for the full amount and must make full payment immediately. Open enrollment is based on the remaining space available, and we will begin that process immediately

If we had a season pass last year at River will we be able to keep the spot we chose last year?

Generally speaking, yes. There are always situations/conditions that might occur which would require a layout modification – but overall, we try to keep things relatively stable from year to year.

Hi Chris,
How soon will we know what days we are scheduled for this pass? we have a lot of wedding inquiries this year and don’t want to double book.

book what you need to, Elaine – others will take those River dates.

Ok so we just sign up through RSV on the website for dates we are interested in?

no; we will assign your dates from what avails you have remaining.

Hi Chris, I am attempting to find an orientation date to RSVP but nothing is coming up on the sign up page. Are orientation dates available atm? Just trying to navigate the forum can be a little confusing, but I understand that updates are forthcoming and we are early in the season!

no orientations have been published

I have been trying to sign up for the River Market but it will not allow me to sign up. I’m not sure why. I have been trying since midnight when the registration opened. Thank you

It looks like you should be able to register; make sure you have a Signup Genius account created before attempting.
