May 18, 2019

Winona Steamboat Days 2019 buttons are now on sale at most Winona convenience stores, retailers, restaurants, Midtown Foods and Hy-Vee.

With your advance button purchase of $5 you can register to win great prizes donated by a variety of area merchants. This year the grand prize is a picnic table donated by Anova Furnishings.

The 2019 button was designed by Kaelah Simmons, a junior at Winona Senior High School. Steamboat Days also awarded second place to Linette Sheehan, junior, and third place to Caitlin Curtin, a freshmen at Winona Senior High.

A Steamboat Days button purchase helps provide free events and activities for the festival, such as the BMX bike show, Kid Power Pedal Pull, TC Hatter Mime, Grande Parade and the fireworks show.
