Fall Finale

Wrap up another great USNWC summer and River Jam Concert Series with us at Fall Finale. This year’s festival features Cider Sampling and the always entertaining and exciting BYOB (Build Your Own Boat) Competition, where participants create their own river-worthy vessels and put them to the test with a trip down the whitewater competition channel. Take part in the Dirty Dozen Obstacle Adventure Race through the USNWC trail system, Aqua Rock Deep Water Solo Climbing Competition, or a yoga practice under the trees, before enjoying the sights and sounds of one of our final musical performances of the year.

    Ok, please tell me that you are willingly going to refund me for the 5 Terrace tickets I bought. I’m not ok with spending $45/each for a meal.

      Hi Melissa, yes all Terrace Access tickets will be refunded automatically; they should credit back to your account with 3-5 days. We apologize for the inconvenience.
