Events--All 2020 AW Events are cancelled

NOTE: All 2020 AW Events are cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to keep you, our staff and volunteers, and the communities that host our events as safe as possible, we made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel all events for the year. Stay tuned for information on virtual events. We need your membership support now more than ever!!!!

American Whitewater holds four official festivals each year: Gauley Fest in West Virginia, Deerfield Fest in Massachusetts, Gore Canyon Festival in Colorado, and Feather Fest in California.

In addition to these events, our volunteers and affiliate clubs host many other events around the country. We participate in several of these events when there are opportunities to promote membership, raise funds for river stewardship work, improve visibility and communications with the community, and support our partners.
