American River Festival 2009Posted September 8, 2009 by Malina
Get ready to celebrate all things American River this September at the American River Festival! The annual event is held on the banks of the South Fork American River every September and includes all kinds of whitewater events: a raft race, kayak rodeo, slalom race, kids events, and of course a rockin’ dinner and party on Saturday night.
Besides being a lot of fun for boaters and whitewater enthusiasts of all stripes, the American River Festival also raises money for good causes like the American River Conservancy and the Tuolumne River Trust. So what’s not to love?? What a cool addition to raft trip on the South or Middle Fork that weekend!
The event kicks off on September 11th (this weekend!) and continues through the weekend. Learn more about this year’s festival at the River Store’s website.
