About this Event

Join us for the three day festival next to the Mississippi River at Riverside Park. We kick off the Friday night with great concert with Cactus Blossoms under a huge tent, and then swing into a full day of fest with 30 crafters, 3 music tents, lively kids area with beatbox & circus performers, and great unique food options. At five o'clock we start a five artist concert so eclectic that our musician folks will bring you choice cuts of funny, country, traditional, blues and string band. Sunday we do the songwriting contest, more great music tent, and end with closing concert by the national touring but local legend Johnsmith.
