Riverfest Commodores Foundation

Who We Are

The Riverfest Commodores started out as ambassadors for the La Crosse Riverfest 4th of July celebration. As the Commodores continued their community work they realized that there was more that they could do to support the region. From that vision The Riverfest Commodore Foundation was formed.
