Lehigh RiverFest is a celebration of the Lehigh River and the community of boaters that it draws to the region for fun-filled Class I, II and III+ rapids. Hosted by Whitewater Challengers. The festival offers live entertainment and a variety of vendors on Saturday from 4pm to 10pm. Exhibitors include outdoor gear vendors, local businesses and organizations, artists, crafters, and food merchants. Some gear vendors will be offering product trials so be sure to arrive Friday night and set up camp!
The Festival offers a "Camping Package" for two nights, plus a breakfast for $20. Also included in this Festival package are our complimentary shuttles to and from the river for boaters and their gear. The shuttle service takes visitors to the White Haven put in and picks up at Rockport. Columbus Day weekend is scheduled as a tentative dam release, so there should be plenty of water to enjoy kayaking, paddleboarding, canoeing or rafting the Lehigh River. Water levels and dam release information will be confirmed the week prior to the event.
Lehigh RiverFest will be held rain or shine!
Other activities available on this weekend include guided whitewater rafting trips, inflatable kayaking, paintball games and target range, camping, bike rentals and shuttles.
Interested vendors are invited to contact the Festival Committee by email or by visiting the web site for more information, or to download a vendor application.
