Concession Program

There are currently no opportunities open for 2022. Future opportunities will be posted publicly on the City of Chicago’s Department of Procurement Services - DPS Alerts.  Registering to receive DPS Alerts will put you on the e-mailing list for all active procurement opportunities with the City of Chicago, including concession opportunities on the Chicago Riverwalk. 

To register, follow the instructions at DPS Alerts 

As a reference, current and past Riverwalk Concession Operations Request for Proposals and Notice of Availabilities are posted.  These procurements are no longer active, however they provide examples of the submittal requirements from past RFP’s or NOA’s.  Future procurements are subject to change for the scope of services and submittal requirements. 

Also available for reference are active license agreements to operate concessions on the Chicago Riverwalk. 

Expired license agreements are available for review under 2016-2017 Vendor License Agreements. 

Thank you for your interest in the Chicago Riverwalk!
