Mississippi River Festival
To honor all those who created and participated in the Mississippi River Festival (1969-1980), the University Archives & Special Collections staff, in collaboration with the Faculty Technology Center, have researched, written, and here assembled a series of projects documenting and interpreting the history of the festival. By clicking on the links provided here, you will be able to access:
- A narrated historical slideshow explaining the entire history of the festival
- A virtual history museum consisting of a searchable database that includes information about all MRF performances and performers
- An alphabetical name index of all MRF artists
- A digitized version of a movie about the inaugural 1969 season
- A digitized version of a second movie about the 1975 season
It has been our great pleasure to recall the MRF to life for your enjoyment.
