Wild & Scenic Red River Fest 2019

 

Paddle registration is now closed.

Join us for a fantastic day of celebrating the Red River on Saturday, September 7, 2019.  You can choose from two float options and gather afterwards for a celebratory party with live music, great eats and cold drinks. Details to be announced soon.

If you would like to join us on the float, please be sure to register.  We need to know who is coming and if you will be bringing your own boat…or not. We realize not everyone can afford to rent a boat, so we are asking for donations from those want to rent to help cover the cost of the boats and the shuttle. For more information, contact Laura Gregory.

Here are some helpful details. 

4.5 mile Paddle: 7th St. Clay City –> Meadowgreen Music Park (approx. 3 hours). Meet/park at Meadowgreen. If you are using the shuttle service, Double Dog Adventure shuttle departs Meadowgreen at 1:30. Paddle starts at 2 from 7th Street Clay City. This paddle will take approximately 3 hours (depending on speed of paddler and swiftness of water).
