Bureau Launches New Series in River Market District
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (July 26, 2023) — The Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau (LRCVB) announces the launch of River Market Live, a new live event series set to begin in the River Market District in August 2023. The initial events will feature a diverse lineup of live performances, offering memorable entertainment experiences for locals and visitors alike. River Market Live will begin August 10, with events taking place every Thursday evening throughout the month from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM in the River Market outdoor pavilions located at 400 President Clinton Avenue.
River Market Live is the latest addition to existing River Market District programming hosted by the LRCVB. 2023 marks the 48th anniversary of the Little Rock Farmers’ Market. It is also the 10th anniversary of Jazz in the Park; a popular free concert series held each April and September that features local musicians.
“We’re so excited to kick off this live event series in August by hosting four pavilion concerts in the River Market District, one of our city’s most visited areas,” said Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau President & CEO Gina Gemberling. “Our hope is that this first month of activities will foster additional River Market Live activations by others so our residents and visitors can have more great experiences,” she added. Examples could include live music, art performances, special events, and more.
August’s River Market Live series is open to the public, and admission is free. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase on-site. Attendees are encouraged to support Little Rock restaurants before and after each event. Chairs will be provided, but people can bring their own. River Market Live is pet-friendly.
With an array of musical talent spanning various genres, including Rock, R&B, Bluegrass/Country, and Hip-Hop, August’s event attendees can expect a dynamic range of performances. The upcoming August River Market Live lineup is as follows:
August 10: Karla Case Band (Rock)
August 17: SynRG (R&B)
August 24: Gravel Yard (Bluegrass/Country)
August 31: DJ Nick Hud & Friends (Hip-Hop/Funk Disco)

River Market Live is a continuation of the LRCVB’s Big on Little Rock commitment to building local pride in Arkansas’s capital city by showcasing and celebrating its people and its amenities including restaurants, attractions, entertainment venues, lodging options, retail shops, and more.
