Gauley Fest annually provides our community with an opportunity to reflect on this much-loved stretch of whitewater, as well as the important stewardship work that American Whitewater has, and continues to do in the region. In honor of Gauley Fest, and in an effort to raise funds for our stewardship work across the country that this festival normally provides, we have the put together an incredible online whitewater auction and it's happening right now => 2021 Gauley Fest Online Auction. Go check it out and bid on some fantastic gear from our amazing Partners (huge thanks to all our Industry Partners!!!).


Gauley Fest is also traditionally our largest membership drive of the year. If you usually renew your membership at the Gauley, please use this opportunity to renew again today! Plus, folks who JOIN OR RENEW before September 30th, 2021 will be entered to win a Custom Dagger Kayaks Rewind. Write “Gauley” in the membership form comments to be entered! We appreciate your membership support deeply! If you’ve already joined or renewed your membership this year and would like to be added into this special Gauley Fest drawing just let us know.


It pains us to not gather in a traditional festival setting this year on the Gauley! However, we hope that you continue to recreate on the rivers we’ve worked so hard to provide flows on and create safe access to. Our natural landscapes have offered such an essential refuge over the past several months and American Whitewater needs your membership support now, more than ever to continue this important work! And don't forget to bid early and often on all of this fantastic set of gear in our 2021 Gauley Fest Online Auction, which will end Tuesday, Sept. 28th at 7pm ET!
