The Ohio River Sternwheel Festival is a not-for-profit organization operating on a budget of approximately $140,000 annually. We operate and are funded through corporate sponsors, sales of souvenirs, private donations and fundraising events.
Our committee is made up of over 100 dedicated members, all volunteers, including officers, a board of trustees and a committee chairperson. We also have 40 sub-committees that plan the different aspects of the festival. We are working together to make the annual Ohio River Sternwheel Festival better than ever. Thank you for your commitment to this celebration of our river city.
