Events 2021

Last year we cancelled our in-person events and moved them online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was an effort to keep you, our staff, and volunteers, as well as the communities that host our events as safe as possible. For 2021, we are in the planning process and will announce events as plans are finalized. Our most recent update on events for the year is here.

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.
