Royal Gorge Whitewater Festival
July 22 - July 23
The 13th Annual Royal Gorge Whitewater Festival (RGWF) features whitewater competitions and land-based recreation events to celebrate the whitewater season. Enjoy summer flows in a fantastic whitewater setting in historic Cañon City, Colorado. Held in the refurbished and family-friendly Centennial Park, the Whitewater Festival pairs boats, bands, and beer for a weekend of fun-filled (and whitewater-fueled) events. It’s the biggest party of the summer in Cañon City and one not to be missed. It’s all about “Boats, Bands, and Beer!”
Profits from the festival benefit Royal Gorge RIO (formerly the Whitewater Kayak Recreation Park or WKRP). This non-profit organization supports the continued expansion of the Whitewater Park, river restoration, and community causes.
Free to attend. Cost associated with participating in events. Exact hours: July 22 from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm, July 23 from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm.
