The Marquette Waterfront Festival is the official curtain-raiser to the eastside’s glorious season of summer music festivals. The festival celebrates its 35th year in 2024 the weekend of June 8 and 9, mixing hot local talent with touring national acts on two stages.

As always, Marquette Waterfront Festival will feature two stages of music, a terrific array of vendors from local businesses, artists and restaurants, as well as craft beer and wine tents. Kids games, the Dandelion Dash (Saturday, 11:30 a.m.) will return as well. On Sunday morning, join or watch the River Alliance’s Fools’ Flotilla! The zany boat parade takes off from Tenney Park locks at 10:30 a.m. down the Yahara River toward the park.
