In 2006, this two day festival at Ashley Park in Jackson attracted thousands as part of Jackson's Sesquicentennial Celebration. After a year hiatus, 2008 brought the Rhythm back! The community called for it, so bands from up and down the river gathered together. We celebrate our cultural heritage, and welcome everyone to celebrate the beauty of the City of Jackson and our little bend in the Des Moines River. As with anything being nurtured, each year Rhythm of the Rivers grows bigger, better and stronger.

Art Project and Art Legacy Project Grants are made possible by the voters of Minnesota thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund and, by an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State's general fund.
