The special event will be conducted in Stillwater, Minnesota, along the beautiful St. Croix River. The St. Croix was designated one of the original eight (8) wild and scenic rivers by Congress in 1968.

Stillwater is often referred to as the Birthplace of Minnesota. In 1848, a territorial convention that began the process of establishing Minnesota as a state was held in Stillwater, at the corner of Myrtle and Main Streets. Minnesota officially became a territory in 1849 and a state in 1858.
