Price: free admission
Artica began near the dawn of this century, and yet it remains forever new. The outdoor celebration of art, music, people and the Mississippi River adopts a new theme each year, with new installations and performances made in response. The theme for 2018 is MississipEpiphany, a compound thought designed to inspire reflection on the history of the region — both good and bad — and the timeless nature of the river that has flowed through all of those societies, cities and years. The Mississippi has been transformed by dredging and construction, yet still it flows. Artica 2018 takes place from noon to midnight Saturday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday (October 13 and 14) on the Artica site (Dickon and Lewis streets; The annual Boat of Dreams parade, in which small boats made of biodegradable materials are put in the water to float downstream, starts at noon Saturday. After dark Sunday, the Lady of Artica will be set aflame, to burn in the darkness until next year. Admission is free.
