The mission of the event is to reconnect with and celebrate our river.

The Festival is fun day on the Willamette waterfront where you can relax with beautiful views of the river, St. Johns Bridge and Forest Park hills. There will be live music, a beer garden, birds from Audubon, a live fish display, guided walks and tabling by a variety of environmental groups as well as opportunities to learn about the clean up proposal and offer feedback. The event is community oriented with an emphasis on the Willamette River as the commons owned by all residents.

The Festival will kick off with the christening and launch of a hand-built boat by middle school students. Later live music gets underway with bluegrass and folk music from bands Loggers Daughter and Cascade Crescendo. A zydeco band, The New Iberians, plays next and last DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid will spin banghra music and offer a dance lesson.  Dance troupes will perform between bands.
