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.
Based upon the positive reaction by Chicago’s residents and visitors throughout the summer, the City expects to receive a large number of highly competitive proposals for the 2016 season.
“So many residents and families came together and enjoyed the Riverwalk this season. We anticipate another season of exciting cultural, entertainment, food, and beverage and retail choices for residents and visitors o relax, have lunch or dinner and enjoy the next great recreational frontier of our great city in 2016.”
Mayor Rahm Emanuel, October 2015
