We’re so relieved and excited to announce that American Whitewater's Biggest Public Outreach Event is back on the schedule for 2022! 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 festival is a showcase for American Whitewater and the top whitewater vendors in the boating community. 

The 2022 Festival will take place from September 15th through September 18th. We’ll be posting more details in the coming weeks, but Vendors can register for booth space now!
