Fall Festival

Kick off the autumn season with us at Fall Festival. 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 Scrambler Obstacle Trail Race, a yoga practice under the trees, or Neptune’s Revenge, the USNWC’s brand new nighttime boatercross showdown, all while enjoying the sights and sounds of one of our final musical performances of the year.
