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; a riverfront promenade; pristine fishing waters with improved fish habitat; and a boathouse/events center.
See RunofRiver.org/River-Fest for details on this year's event.
