The Party:

JOIN US FOR Hudson’s annual RiverFest celebration in mid-July. This event includes a wide range of activities designed to allow people of all ages to actively enjoy the St. Croix River. 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 annual river cleanup is a core activity of the Hudson RiverFest. Community volunteers form teams get out on the river collecting trash and working to help cleanup the river. While the goal of RiverFest is to get people out to enjoy the river, the river cleanup is the “Purpose” for the celebration.

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.

The Party:

JOIN US FOR Hudson’s annual RiverFest celebration in mid-July. This event includes a wide range of activities designed to allow people of all ages to actively enjoy the St. Croix River. 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 annual river cleanup is a core activity of the Hudson RiverFest. Community volunteers form teams get out on the river collecting trash and working to help cleanup the river. While the goal of RiverFest is to get people out to enjoy the river, the river cleanup is the “Purpose” for the celebration.

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.
