Port of Dubuque

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.
Residents and visitors can enjoy a stroll on the Mississippi Riverwalk, 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.
