AW Deerfield Fest

A gathering of river supporters!

Come celebrate whitewater releases on the Deerfield River!  On water events, clinics, reps, tents, food, games and evening music and festivities, it’s all here!  American Whitewater holds three large fundraising events per season and we are fortunate to have one of them right here on the Deerfield River. The Deerfield RiverFest is a celebration of cooperative dam re-licensing legislature that provides recreational whitewater releases that satisfies the needs of all water users. This is one of the biggest gatherings of whitewater paddlers in the Northeast!  Help support the organization that helps makes paddling possible all across the country!
