This year we look forward to collaborating with Harbor District and Milwaukee Riverkeeper with Sturgeon Fest returning as a part of Harbor Fest! Harbor Fest celebrates all things fish, water, and boats. Attendees can expect food and drink, live music by Caché, art, a fish petting zoo, activities for families like learning how to clean a fish, shopping from local makers, and information and goodies from our business tent featuring Milwaukee’s Harbor District businesses.

Sturgeon Fest celebrates Riveredge’s partnership with the Wisconsin DNR to bring back Lake Sturgeon, a critically important species both environmentally and culturally, to the Milwaukee River, where they haven’t been seen in over 100 years. At our yearly Sturgeon Fest celebration, thousands of people come to Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee to celebrate the fish and help us release them into Lake Michigan. We'd love for you to join us. For just a $10 donation to the sturgeon project, you can release one of these incredible fish into the water and be a hands-on part of reintroducing a species. Reserve your sturgeon for release now and learn all about the day online.
