MARIETTA, Ohio (WOWK) – Another big festival in our region has been postponed to 2021.

According to a release, the 45th Ohio River Sternwheel Festival has been postponed until September 2021.

According to the release, the Ohio River Sternwheel Festival Board and the Marietta/Belpre Health Department have jointly determined that the festival body cannot adequately ensure the health and safety of 60,000-100,000 individuals in such a small geographic location.

The festival’s body is looking to expand their committee. If you have a passion for the Ohio River Sternwheel Festival and are interested in keeping the river town tradition alive, please email OhioRiverSternwheelFestival@gmail.com for an application.
