Cape Girardeau has a close relationship with the Mississippi River. For 21 years Riverfest celebrated the fact that the community was on the river and of the river. The festival featured music, games, food, fireworks, crafts, and special events. Thousands of people from all over the region came to participate.
The Show Me Center is the premier entertainment center for the Southeast MIssouri region and a 1980s, cooperative project between the city of Cape Girardeau and Southeast Missouri State University.
