You can fill your days with all the RiverBend activities you choose or spend it relaxing. Or take a day trip to a number of nearby attractions. There are several activities you will discover that you just don’t want to miss!
All of these events take place at our “Florida old-style” River Clubhouse and “Benders”, our RiverBend Bar. The River Clubhouse is nestled in a grove of moss-covered live oaks with a natural landscape that overlooks the beautiful Caloosahatchee River.

In season, we have a week of activities and games for our residents to participate in for some friendly competition. It starts with a colorful parade around the Resort with golf carts following our torch bearers. The games include golf, corn hole, pickleball, billiards, ping pong, water volleyball, shuffleboard, bocce ball, and many more. At the end of the week, we have a ceremony much like the “Olympics” complete with medals and a three-tiered podium for gold, silver and bronze winners.
CLASSIC CAR SHOW
Anywhere from 100-150 classic cars trek out to RiverBend to show off their vehicles. Many of the RB residents and others enjoy getting to see these cars close up. Classic car enthusiasts admire the well maintained and meticulous attention to detail that was used in restoring these classics! Public welcome.
Several area RV dealers bring new and used Class A Motorcoaches to RiverBend for the weekend. It’s a fun time to see what’s new in the industry and maybe find your new dream wheels. A large variety of brands are represented. Public welcome.
This is a fun weekend with special live entertainment and numerous activities planned by a committee of RiverBend residents.
The cattlemen’s dinner is one of the most popular dinners at RiverBend. The Hendry County Cattlemen’s Association serves a grilled-to-order steak complete with all the delicious sides to a huge crowd in less than 20 minutes!
We all look forward to an evening of entertainment provided by fellow RiverBend residents. There are many talented residents that sing, play instruments and dance for our enjoyment. Plus, we have many skits and routines that keep us rolling in the aisles with laughter.
