ABOUT THE CLEARING
The Clearing is nestled along the beautiful Mississippi River in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota. This brand new venue includes the existing Southside Park and Lion's Park, along with a large event center, small rental room, interactive water feature, outdoor amphitheater, and a gorgeous riverside view for all to enjoy.
Join us once again this year year on Thursday evenings from for free live music, all summer long! See the 2022 lineup here >>
An exquisite event center with a clear view of the water, the Riverside Terrace building is a gorgeous location for a wedding reception, corporate parties, and other grand events.
A mini building with a big view of both the river and the spectacular interactive water feature, The Lookout makes a great space for small birthday parties. With full IT setup, it also makes a unique space for group meetings or retreats.
An outdoor space that's perfect for community gatherings, the 1851 Square features a state-of-the-art sound system suitable for bands of all sizes. This is where we're hosting Riverside Nights every Thursday this summer.
