America's River Festival announced today they were closing after a 15 year run in Dubuque.

In a press release issued today the group said:

"the America’s River Corporation board and partners have treasured being a part of this experience, however, it is time for the festival to make way for the new wave of events in Dubuque"

Over the years they've hosted some pretty big names from Lady Antebellum to Sam Hunt, and Little Big Town.

KCRG reports the festival welcomed thousands of attendees each year hosting on-site events like DockDogs, Stihl Timbersports, Cabela’s Fishing Tournaments, and more.

The festival has also played host to iconic classic rock legends like Chicago, REO Speedwagon, Lynyrd Skynyrd and more.

The release continued ...

What once started as a signature experience for a community eager to showcase what it had to offer has now become one of many successful events that draw people to the community. After many thoughtful conversations, the America’s River Corporation has decided to end the fifteen-year run of America’s River Festival with the success of the 2019 event.
