An Evening Celebrating the Mississippi River: The River Dreams
Join us for the Big River’s biggest night as we celebrate the myriad ways in which the river sparks imagination, catalyzes action and inspires us to dream of a future where its waters run wild and clean. From our historic venue on the Minneapolis riverfront, we'll savor refreshments and seasonal fare, and enjoy a river-themed auction, live music and interactive learning exhibits.
BID IN OUR SILENT AUCTION
This year’s festivities will feature the stories of our hopes and dreams for the river, and the work we’re spearheading in pursuit of these dreams. The stories will be told by Friends of the Mississippi River’s own staff and program participants — the people on the front lines of our critical work who daily dream of a brighter future for our river and river communities, and whose imaginations, skill and effort drive those dreams closer to reality.
