Residents and visitors can enjoy a stroll on the Mississippi Riverwalk, bike the Port of Dubuque on-road bike route, watch riverboats come and go, or host a private event in the River’s Edge Plaza. The Alliant Energy Amphitheater is home to several festivals each year, and can also be rented for private events.
In the late 1990s, the Dubuque County Historical Society created the America’s River project with a goal of raising $25 million to redevelop the historic Ice Harbor into a museum campus capturing the historical, environmental, educational and recreational majesty of the Mississippi River. Soon the $25 million America’s River project, became a $188 million riverfront revitalization effort. Today, over $400 million has been invested in the area now known as the Port of Dubuque.
