What’s going on? In the Great Rivers & Routes region, it’s celebrating local brews with Craft Beer Week. Or turning your eyes to the skies for Eagle Watching. Taking a cruise along one of the region’s three great rivers. Sitting back and enjoying great outdoor concerts and live music.

And those are just a few of the countless events that fill up the calendar in the Great Rivers & Routes region. Whatever piques your interest, there’s an event for it.

Want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a few hundred of your best Irish (or Irish for the day) friends? We do that.

Looking to get spooked at a haunted house – that’s actually haunted? We do that.

Seeking the adrenaline rush of watching a rider try to stay on the back of a bucking bull for eight seconds? We do that.
