Mission Statement/Purpose

Rhythm of the River:  An annual festival that brings people of all ages together in celebration of Music, the Arts, and Community.



  • To support an annual community event that offers a variety of music and art for all ages.

  • To expose festival goers to new music, singers, songwriters, and genres while giving artists an opportunity to share, display and showcase their material.

  • To gather friends, family, and neighbors in a multi generational setting that celebrates the beauty of the DesMoines River Valley, the City of Jackson, and the community that brings them together.

  • To offer a professional quality event that is inclusive of all income levels and is not a financial burden to families who attend together.

  • To promote Jackson as a destination for The Arts through an enjoyable and well managed Annual Music Festival.


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.
