100 boats will hit the waters at the confluence of the Mississippi, Missouri, and Illinois rivers to enjoy the best catfishing in the country during this event! Come hang out in downtown Alton on Saturday and enjoy everything the riverfront has to offer. You won't want to miss the official weigh-in and award ceremony that takes place at the Liberty Bank Amphitheater at 4 PM as these monstrous blue catfish tip the scales! The Alton Catfish Classic will also coincide with the Mississippi Earthtones Festival this year running from noon to 10 PM. Celebrate the great rivers, conservation, and outdoor recreation all in one action-packed day!
