Longfellow River Gorge Festival

September 8 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Longfellow River Gorge festival is one of LCC’s longest running annual events. Each fall we honor and celebrate the Mississippi River, its history, and its vital ongoing importance to humans and wildlife. The festival educates community about the River’s functions and ecology in a fun and approachable way focusing on restoration and conservation.

Join us on Sunday, September 8th from 12 to 4pm at the Mississippi River Gorge! This is a free and family-friendly event with activities for all ages: canoe rides, geology tours, kids activities, nature walks, live music, and more! Find event details and schedule here.
