The Party

JOIN US FOR Hudson’s annual RiverFest celebration on July 21 – 25.  In light of current COVID-19 health and safety concerns the 2020 event will be held as a virtual event with a range of activities designed to encourage people of all ages to 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 five-day event celebrates the river while also recognizing the need to preserve its health and beauty.

The Purpose

THE ANNUAL RIVER CLEAN-UP is a core activity of the Hudson RiverFest. Community volunteers get out on the river collecting trash (observing social distancing) and work to help clean up the river. While the goal of RiverFest is to get people out to enjoy the river, the river clean-up is the “Purpose” for the celebration.

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 in Hudson, Wisconsin.

This year’s virtual activities are planned to appeal to a variety of people and share a common thread of building awareness of the river, our environment and education on the need to preserve our water quality.
