Autumn Children’s Festival

This Year’s Festival is CANCELLED

As the Tennessee Riverpark continues to be a convenient and appropriate location for COVID testing and vaccinations, this decision was made jointly in the best interest of public health.

This is not a decision we have arrived at without careful consideration of the Ronald McDonald House programs that serve a vulnerable population of ill and injured children who are at a higher risk of serious illness and complications from COVID-19,” said Jane Kaylor, RMHC President and CEO. “We look forward to resuming the Annual Autumn Children’s Festival in October 2022.”
