The 29th Annual Coosa River Whitewater Festival will be a weekend full of fun, fellowship, competition, and whitewater! Please see the schedule below for event times and locations for the weekend.

Please note that all times are local time (CST). Competition times may vary depending on the number of competitors registered for a competition or a specific freestyle class. Some competitions may be cancelled if there are not enough competitors registered for that competition.

In order to participate in all festival activities you must be registered or a registered guest and wearing the armband that you will receive at registration check-in. If you or your guest is not wearing an armband, you will be asked to register or leave the festival location. Since the Coosa River is a public waterway you do not need to be registered while on the river or to be a spectator during competitions. You will need to be registered for all scheduled events (entertainment, meals, camping, etc.) at the festival grounds held at the Coosa Outdoor Center and for the shuttles provided by Coosa River Adventures, Coosa Outdoor Center, and Outside World Outfitters on Saturday.

Registration will be available on-line soon (through May 1, 2015) or on-site at the Coosa River Paddling Club check-in located outside of the Coosa Outdoor Center store during the times listed below. Please note that Coosa River Adventures and the Coosa Outdoor Center do not accept registrations or payments for the whitewater festival.
