Celebrate the lifeblood of the Palouse at the 2024 Snake River Family Festival.

Here, we live, work and play along the Snake River. Its four locks and dams enable us to ship our crops, water our land and power our businesses. They also enhance our quality of life by giving our inland communities access to boating, fishing, swimming and more.

Celebrate the Snake with us Saturday, June 8, 2024 at the beautiful riverfront Boyer Park & Marina from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Enjoy live music from Americana band The Wasteland Kings, a complimentary barbecue lunch and Ferdinand's classic ice cream while supplies last. Activities for kids of all ages will be available on land and in the water, along with various vendors offering river-themed entertainment and giveaways.

Additionally, a free shuttle will be available from the park at noon and 2 p.m. for guided tours of Lower Granite Lock & Dam with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Sign up for a tour at the Corps' booth near the welcome tent.

Every part of the festival is free and open to the public! Never pay for admission, parking, food or entertainment. The festival is brought to you every year by the Port of Whitman County, your Port on the Palouse.

Meet you at the river June 8, 2024!
