Warm memories are made in Marietta, Ohio, home of the Ohio River Sternwheel Festival

One by one, from up river and down, the sternwheelers arrive in Marietta, Ohio, home of the American Sternwheel Association. They come to The Riverboat Town, to have some good ol’ fashioned fun at the event of the year – the Ohio River Sternwheel Festival!

All events are FREE, and the atmosphere is festive and friendly

Marietta invites you to come early and stay late.  Enjoy the continuous weekend entertainment, food and refreshments from the various vendors and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the Ohio River Sternwheel Festival!

It’s always the weekend after Labor Day

The 2016 Festival will be held September 9, 10, and 11 at the Ohio River Levee on the corner of Front and Greene Streets in downtown Marietta.
