Hudson’s annual RiverFest celebration is July 19-24. The 2016 event will be expanded to include a wider range of activities designed to allow people of all ages to actively enjoy the Lower St. Croix River and all that it provides.

Several local organizations and individuals have collaborated to make “RiverFest: A Party with a Purpose” a success. The six-day event celebrates the river while also recognizing the need to preserve its health and beauty.

The Purpose

The Hudson RiverFest was born out of the St. Croix River Association’s River Awareness Week and with a goal building awareness of the St. Croix River. RiverFest encourages people to enjoy, understand and preserve this national treasure that flows right past our community.

The RiverFest activities are planned to appeal to a variety of people. All of the activities share a common thread of building awareness of the river, our environment and education on the need to preserve our water quality.
