The Riverboat is back… for a 7th time! The 2017 Theme: Sunset, Waves and Mirrored Shades.

Last year Substance Church packed 227 people onto the Riverboat for a trip down the St. Croix, so we’re looking forward to packing it out again this year! Dress up for the dinner cruise down the river, featuring a full dinner buffet, DJ Benny K, and as a special treat, live oldie band, the “TC Cats” will be seranading all of us cool cats as we get onto the boat and in the lower level during the dinner buffet. There will be other surprises throughout the night, along with many, many opportunities for snapshots against the picturesque backdrop of the sunset in the St. Croix River Valley.

Feel free to bring your own mirrored shades, or pick up a complimentary pair of sunglasses which will look amazing in all your sunset pictures!

Dinner features barbecue brisket, chicken, mashed potatoes, green salad, baked beans, fruit, sandwich trimmings, and dessert. Please email to request a Dairy Free and Gluten Free option.

Ticket price is $40 through July 7th, then $45 after July 7th (plus Eventbrite fee).

Ticket price includes music, photo booth, mirrored shades, dinner and non-alcoholic beverages. (no alcohol will be sold)
