LL&W’s Annual Barge Party


There is no barge party for 2017, but check back for details on the 2018 event soon!

The annual Barge Party in the Quad Cities on the Mighty Mississippi is our biggest event of the year, with over 900 in attendance. It brings our crew, sponsors and supporters together for our only fundraising event of the year. The night kicks off with a fish fry and shrimp boil dinner, meet & greet with the LL&W team, silent art auction, wine pull, live music and a cash bar!

In 2016, we introduced our first after-party at RIBCO featuring The Candymakers. We can’t wait to announce our new additions for 2018!
