43rd Yampa Valley River Fest

All day
June 1, 2023 June 4, 2023

The flagship event of Friends of the Yampa, the Yampa River Festival, is a true hometown celebration of our friend the Yampa River.  This year, our 43rd annual, we are carefully watching the water levels to host a safe and fun event that celebrates the Yampa!

It is with great thanks to all the passionate and dedicated river enthusiasts, partners, and supporters that this event continues to be the gem that it is today. While following all the latest safety guidelines, we hope that our river friends will join us to celebrate this year’s Yampa River Festival between June 1-4, 2023. The main event is on Saturday, June 3.

This year’s Fish Creek Kayak Race will be held in spirit of our friend and previous board member, Adam Mayo, and the Downriver Raft race will be held in honor of our friend, Drew Hyde.

See you on the river!
