RIVER CITY REVUE: Art, Science, History & Adventure on the Mississippi River

River City Revue is a summer series of river tours on and by the Mississippi throughout our national park. Each tour animates a different theme and presents eclectic perspectives in an effort to focus attention on the Mississippi River and our national park. The events, on and off the river, feature live music, short science talks, art presentations, hands-on art making, and plenty of river stories.

Walk down any pier in Minneapolis or St. Paul, from the banks of the Mississippi River to any of the city lakes, and you'll see the young and old alike with a plastic bucket filled with fathead minnows and a fishing pole, trying their luck at landing a walleye. On this bus tour, we'll meet some of the fishermen and -women themselves, along with park rangers, naturalists, chefs, fishing enthusiasts and others, as well as visiting bait shops, seafood restaurants, national park sites, and of course a few of the city's best fishin' holes.

River City Revue is presented by the Mississippi River Fund, the National Park ServiceWorks Progress Studio, and artist Andy Sturdevant.
