Willimantic Riverfest

September 29 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

$10 – $30

Are you excited about Riverfest 2018? It’s coming ~ 9/29/18 from 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. We have lots of fun and exciting in-river events this year.

1. The traditional river paddle which you all know and love.
2. A guided river tour in conjunction with The Last Green Valley‘s Walktober.
3. An individual or team-based Scavenger Hunt/Poker Run where you can win a prize if your team comes out on top. More details to be posted soon!

To pre-purchase your tickets for any of these in-river events, you can go here:

For those new to WWP’s Riverfest, you will drop your boat off at the Eagleville Pond Dam after 9:15 a.m. and drive down to Bridge Street, Willimantic to register and park your car. EASTCONN will be providing busses to shuttle participants back up to the dam where you can put your boats in the water and enjoy the day.

If you would like to participate in the guided river tour, you will need to be back at Eagleville Dam ready to put-in no later than 10:15 a.m. We want to give you and the leader as much time as possible to enjoy the river and the tour.

Along the river route, we’ll also have:
* Live music
* Snacks and water available
* In-house photographer taking action shots
* Food trucks/snacks available at the put-in and take-out areas
* After-Riverfest specials for participants by local area businesses.

All that’s missing is YOU!

Save the date and buy your tickets today!!

Please share this post with all your friends, family, kayak/canoe sites, kayaking/canoeing Facebook pages, kayaking/canoeing forums and with anyone else you think might be interested in joining us for this fabulous event!

We’ll see you on the river on Saturday, September 29!!
