2023 Gauley Fest Vendor Registration is Live

We’re excited to kick start 2023 Gauley Fest planning! Started in 1983 to celebrate the derailment of a hydro-electric project that would have disrupted the flows on the Gauley River, Gauley Fest has grown to become the largest paddling festival in the world. The Gauley Fest vendor marketplace is second to none for reaching the whitewater boating and outdoor community in the US. 

The 2022 Festival will take place from September 13th through September 17th. We’ll be posting more details in the coming weeks, but Vendors can register for booth space now! 

We expect vendor spots to fill up quickly this year, which marks the 40th Gauley Fest Anniversay, so get to gettin' and secure your spot today. One 10' x 10' booth space is $400. Nonprofit pricing is available.
