Who else is super excited for the 38th annual Yampa River Festival? The event is set to kick off on tomorrow May 31st for the State of the Yampa Address at the Chief Theatre.

This three-day event is a fun filled weekend which aims to raise awareness about how you can help protect the mighty Yampa River adorning our beautiful valley. The event is organized by a passionate group of individuals who go by the name of “Friends of the Yampa”.

Here are just a few of the events that will take place throughout the weekend:

  • Race at Fish Creek - Friday 6pm - Must see event!

  • Kayak Slalom

  • Downriver Races

  • The SUP cup

  • River dog contests

  • Tubing

  • Raft Races

  • And of course, plenty of great food and beverages to be enjoyed

Seriously, you don’t want to miss out on this! It is hands down one of the best weekends of the year.

I hope to see you 'round the river!
