IFEA commends Riverbend Festival

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

A well known group of festival officials say Chattanooga's sense of community makes Riverbend top the list of events to take in.

The International Festivals and Events Association, IFEA, spent some time in the Scenic City this week for their monthly board meeting and were able to enjoy Riverbend, as well.

Board members say they're dazzled by the experience.

"I think a lot of people in our industry keep an eye on them to watch what they're doing and see what they're trying and what new ideas, and that's always a compliment, I think, when your peers are paying attention and care enough to say 'What's going on in Chattanooga?'" says Steve Schmader, President and CEO of IFEA.

The IFEA leads top festivals and events around the world including the Kentucky Derby Festival  and the Pasadena Tournament of Roses.

O.A.R will close out Riverbend Saturday night, followed by fireworks.
