This September 20-21, come join American Whitewater at the world's largest paddling festival (and our biggest fundraiser): Gauley Fest Presented by Subaru!

American Whitewater is proud to join all our paddling friends in Summersville, WV for a weekend of great paddling, camping, music, vending and comraderie. What's more, this year is the 30th year of Gauley Fest, which means we have three decades of excellent whitewater paddling to celebrate after paddlers prevented a dam project and secured releases on this iconic river.

Check out some photos from Gauley Fests past to get an idea of just how big and fun Gauley Fest truly is. When it comes to a paddling festival, there's truly nothing like it!

Finally, if you've read this far, we hope you'll consider volunteering at Gauley Fest. It's a total boater event so the work is really casual and fun.

See you there!
