Port of Des Moines

Ahoy! Welcome to the one-stop Downtown entertainment site for planning your day by land or by sea! Actually with Private Client Catering, you can host your event almost anywhere!

Plan your event around lunch or catered dinner at the Trellis Café with a visit to the nationally recognized and renovated Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden.

Or enjoy the view from the center of all Downtown Des Moines has to offer from the Riverwalk Hub with Wine on tap, local craft Beers and the cities most interesting event space.

Plan ahead and your entire event can be on the water, cruising aboard the Jon Anderson White Riverboat with cocktails and dinner included. While we had hoped the Jon Anderson White Riverboat would to be up and running for 2014 the floods this summer has set back construction of the new docks at Saylorville Marina. We need those to be able to load and unload passengers safely. We will post updates here as we know more information. It’s not too soon to plan for next season, contact us today for details.
