River Fest

August 2-5, 2017

River Fest is Skowhegan's annual multi-day celebration of recreation and life on the Kennebec.

The event also illustrates the potential of the Kennebec River Gorge as the future home of the Run of River Whitewater Recreation Area. Run of River will include a whitewater park with enhanced rapids and waves; terraced seating; a four-season, non-motorized trail system for walking, trail running, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing; pristine fishing waters with improved fish habitat; a riverfront promenade; and a boathouse/events center.

River Fest is sponsored by Skowhegan Savings Bank and organized by Main Street Skowhegan, the Skowhegan Area Chamber of Commerce, Skowhegan Parks and Recreation, and the Run of River Committee.
