Wanatchee River Festival: June 14 - 16

Published on 5/16/2014

Saturday, June 14th in Cashmere, WA!

Come together, get out on the river with friends and family and enjoy the Wenatchee River!

The paddling community has come together once again to provide the community a forum to celebrate and inspire one another, as well as raise funds to support American Whitewater, whose mission continues to conserve and restore America's whitewater resources and to enhance opportunities to enjoy them safely.

We welcome and encourage participation of all river lovers. Whether you kayak, raft, or ride the waves on a board, the festival offers a little something for everyone.

Thank you to all our supporters, including the paddling community, organizers, sponsors, volunteers, and a most gracious "thank you" to the City of Cashmere for hosting WRF for 25 plus years. This year's festival will feature:
