In an effort to keep you, our staff and volunteers, and the communities that host our events as safe as possible, we made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel all AW events in 2020, including our traditional Feather Fest throwdown in California. We're so bummed to not be able to gather in person but we're pleased to announce that we'll all be congregating for a virtual festival to celebrate some of our stewardship victories and to thank our membership base with some great drawings! Virtual Feather Fest will take place on Wednesday, October 28th at 7:00 p.m. PST. 

If you normally join or renew your membership at Feather Fest, you can use this membership renewal form to get entered to win some rad prizes!

Join our Master of Ceremony and stalwart AW supporter Sage Donnelly. The event will highlight a video from the first ever Feather River Festival Foamie Downriver Race, presentations from Theresa Simsiman American Whitewater California Stewardship Director, Melissa DeMarie Chief Instigator of California Watersport Collective and Trevor Croft of Rafting Magazine. To top it all off Boot Juice will be on board with an exclusive American Whitewater live stream jam concert giving us that Feather River Festival vibe.
