Riverview Music Festival

DMMC is excited to announce Riverview Music Festival, which took place for the first time September 4, 2021 at The Riviera at Riverview Park. This event is designed to showcase a diverse roster of live music — including national, regional, and local talent — in the city’s most diverse neighborhood.

“We worked hard to foster a vibrant music economy in the Downtown area and are excited to expand our impact by bringing a new festival to one of most diverse neighborhoods in our city and state,” Saah said. “This event truly showcased the Northside’s unique art and culture bonafides.”

Festivals like these are just one way the DMMC works towards its mission to make Des Moines a music city. “There are so many exciting things on the horizon,” says Diana Weishaar, new to the DMMC board this year, “from our education programs to artist activation and big events like The Riverview Music Festival. We are focused on growth and inclusivity, and with those goals in mind, the Northside is a perfect place to launch something new.”
