We hope you'll join us for An Evening Celebrating the Mississippi River: The River Dreams on September 29, 2022, the Big River's biggest night!

The Mississippi River is an ecological resource of global and local significance. Its historic and cultural legacy resonates from the Twin Cities to the Gulf to around the world. Come gather with us to celebrate it and support our work to protect it.

Program Overview

For those who seek and find a connection to our great river, we understand its power to spark imagination, catalyze action, and inspire a future in which its waters run wild and clean.

This year's festivities will feature 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, board members and program participants — the people on the front lines of our critical work who daily dream of a brighter future for our river and communities, and whose imaginations, skill and effort drive those dreams closer to reality.

The event will also feature updates on Friends of the Mississippi River's work, a lively river-themed auction, and interactive opportunities for event participants to support our vital mission.
