Tallulah Fest May 13-15 presented by BBB paddling

Even with Tallulah releases being cancelled, the Tallulah Fest is still going to happen! Come out and paddle other close-by southeastern classic rivers; Chattooga, Cheoah, Nantahala and Ocoee.

Get ready for an outdoor festival thrown by a bunch of kayakers.  Tallulah Fest will feature games, camping, live entertainment Friday and Saturday night, kayaking videos presented by John Grace, over $1,000 worth of gear to be raffled away, giveaways, some friendly competition and a whole lot more all located at River Campground in Lakemont, Ga.  The Chattooga River is just a few miles away as well as several other great runs nearby if the water is right!    All proceeds of Tallulah Fest are being donated to American Whitewater.  Check it out at or find Tallulah Fest on Facebook for details.
