What We Do
Wicked River Event Production is a Dubuque, Iowa, based company that provides event planning and production services for anything from dinner parties and weddings to corporate meetings, conferences, non-profit fundraisers, and more.
While you focus on creating the vibe you want for your event, we'll help you stay ahead of the game by locking down locations, dealing with permits, and booking vendors.
Let us be your single point of contact for the venue, catering staff, florists, performers, or anybody else who's going to need direction to make your event happen.
Sometimes it's nice to have somebody other than you onsite to put out fires. We'll bring the hose.
We charge one fee, per hour, no matter what. When it comes down to it, do you really want to spend hours on the phone researching venues, confirming vendors, and triple checking that everything is in place? Probably not. That's what we're here for. We've done all this before, so we know the ropes. Let us save you time and effort.
Who We Are
This photo makes her look like a money-obsessed jerk, but she’s not. This money belongs to somebody else, she's just helping them rake it in. Danielle likes to volunteer (a lot). One day somebody said, "You know, I bet people would pay you to do what you're doing now for free."
Well, here we are, and here is Wicked River.
What We Are Not
Your Communication or PR Agency
We are great at taking your ideas and figuring out how to logistically bring them to life. But, they are just that. YOUR ideas. If you need help creating strategic content or figuring out how to craft your message, we know a lot of really smart people who do that for a living. We'll put you in touch. If you want us to promote your event via our social media channels, of course we will! As far as getting information out to your followers, that's on you.
Your Development Specialist
"Development" is just another way to say "fundraising." Some people are very, very good at that. We are not. BUT, we'll make sure your fundraising event goes off without a hitch. That way, your high-rolling guests see you focusing all your attention on your cause while we take care of the behind-the-scenes details.
