Canoe, Pontoon, Shantyboat, Yacht

This summer, how do you want to get out on the river? Whether you crave canoes, pontoons, shantyboats, yachts, or riverboats, we've got you've covered.
Always fancied yachts? The July 1st River City Revue happens at the Saint Paul Yacht Club. Join us there for a special behind-the-ropes tour of the Yacht Club's docks. Check out boats, including an art shantyboat, sample the cash bar, try cool art-making activities, and hear river stories along with live music from the Marina All-Stars. Register for July 1 River City Revue at Saint Paul Yacht Club.

Maybe you seek hands-on river adventure. This Saturday, June 20th, sign up for a free canoe RAVE. Our River Action Volunteer Events combine sporty outdoor fun with a service project like planting cottonwood trees. Register for Saturday's canoe RAVE.

If paddling isn't your thing, maybe you'd prefer a pontoon ride. Mississippi River Fund members can sign up for a free pontoon boat trip that happens Tuesday evening, June 23rd, 6 PM.  Not a member? You can join now and you'll be good to go on the pontoon. Register for June 23 Member-Only Pontoon Boat Trip.

Once you've sampled canoes, pontoons, shantyboats, and yachts, be sure to hop aboard a classic river boat. Our July 22 River City Revue offers river-lovers the chance to travel along the Mississippi in style, on the popular Jonathan Padelford Riverboat. Register for July 22 River City Revue Riverboat Trip.  All aboard for a summer of river fun!
