Great River Days Inc. is a non-profit run by volunteers which has been responsible for the Great River Days Festival in Muscatine, Iowa every summer for almost 60 years. At one point in its history a Great River Days pinback button served as the ticket into the event. In later years, the buttons became souvenirs instead of proof of payment to attend the festival. In 2017, It was announced that the festival would be discontinued due to cost and safety issues on the riverfront.
