Tuck Fest whitewater

More than 55,000 people attended Tuck Fest at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in 2018.

Tuck Fest returns for its seventh year at the U.S. National Whitewater Center April 25-28.

Attendance at the festival, which celebrates the outdoor lifestyle through competitions, exhibitions, demos and live music, has grown from 14,000 visitors in 2013 to more than 55,000 last year.

Tuck Fest – named for the Tuckaseegee Ford and Trail, a historical landmark at USNWC – features a variety of outdoor competitions including trail running, kayaking, biking, climbing, stand-up paddleboarding and obstacle and adventure racing.

There is no admission price outside the parking fee to experience live music and demos and watch all of the competitions.

For those who want to compete in any of the three-dozen competitions, a one-time fee provides access to them all. To register, visit tuckfest.usnwc.org/buy/registration.

Passes are also available for USNWC’s more than 30 outdoor activities, including guide-led rides on the center’s whitewater course.
