Annual Deerfield Riverfest Planned for July 11th
By: Robert Nasdor
The 21st Deerfield Riverfest will be held on July 11th in Charlemont (MA). The annual event celebrates whitewater boating on the Deerfield River that resulted from the historic settlement agreement signed by AW, FLOW, AMC and others which provides 106 whitewater release days on the Fife Brook section and 32 releases on the Dryway section of the Deerfield River. The festival is AW's biggest fundraiser in the northeast and supports our stewardship work in the region. The event will feature boat and gear vendors, great food, our silent auction, and the ever popular raft guide olympics. Proving that great paddlers can be great musicians, Jeff Campbell and the Symptoms will perform along with the Brooke Sofferman Perspective. Camping will be available at the festival site, and we have space for additional vendors.

Looging forward to seeing you at the Deerfield Riverfest!
