Building upon the success of 2015, the City has issued a Notice of Availability (NOA) for concession operations for the Chicago Riverwalk’s 2016 season. The goal of the NOA is to allow vendors an opportunity to submit proposals which will continue to activate and draw visitors to the Riverwalk. The City envisions a mix of recreational, cultural, entertainment, food and beverage and retail facilities on the Riverwalk, creating a vibrant area to be enjoyed by residents, tourists and visitors alike.
“The Riverwalk was a bustling hub of activity this year, offering a variety of venues and spaces for residents and visitors to eat, drink and play. The riverfront investments we’re making throughout the City are increasing river access, increasing recreational opportunities and promoting economic growth.”
Mayor Rahm Emanuel, 2016
