Ledyard's 2nd Annual Riverfest
On the weekend of April 16th-18th, Ledyard will be hosting its second annual river festival in the Upper Valley. There will be races on the Wells River and Mascoma River, as well as a kayak rodeo at the Connecticut Hartlands rapid and a triathlon. There will be a festival party on Saturday evening at the DOC house featuring live music, a kayak movie premiere, food and beer, raffles, and prize giveaways.
The festival is open to any and all outdoor enthusiasts from all over; we expect paddlers from as far as Alaska! For safety reasons some competitions require a certain level of boating ability, but there are many events open to all skill levels and there are great viewing areas for the whitewater competitions. There will also be a conservation event during the weekend.
Online registration is now available.
Camping will be available for those traveling from afar. For more information, please visit ledyardriverfestival.com or contact Ledyard Canoe Club (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions. If your business is interested in sponsoring the festival, please contact Emily Yen (email@example.com).
