The Gauley River and whitewater festival has always been about about community. We gather each year to celebrate this incredible, whitewater-rich river every fall. Earlier this year, after serious consideration and deliberation, the Gauley Fest event team made the difficult decision to postpone a full-blown Gauley Fest at the Veterans Memorial Park until September 2022. Gauley Fest is traditionally our biggest membership outreach push, so to still celebrate the Gauley River this year we encourage you to join or renew your membership with American Whitewater (and be entered to win some awesome prizes) during our upcoming Gauley Membership Drive starting September 16th, and to take part in our coinciding silent auction supporting our stewardship work in the region, which will include an awesome selection of gear from many of our incredible industry partners.
Fall releases on the Gauley River are still a GO so come out and enjoy paddling this amazing river. An update on what to expect this season is posted herehttps://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/Article/view/article_id/X37BKG6hEpdqWL52EzcQX/.
