New this year! The National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium will kick off its first Boat Fest event with a ton of summer fun activities in its soon-to-be-completed Mississippi Plaza in the Port of Dubuque.
Please join us the weekend of June 23-24 as boats of all kinds, from canoes to yachts, will dock in the Port to participate in the festivities that include a Boat Contest, Children's Village featuring model boat-building activities, Battleship Competition, Quick n' Dirty Boat Building Contest, Rock n' Rollin' on the River Party with live music entertainment, and more!
The public can see all these great activities in action, plus learn about the history of boating in our historic Ice Harbor during Boat Fest. *Regular admission to the Museum & Aquarium applies.*
