The Northwest boating community comes together at the annual Upper Clackamas Whitewater Festival, the largest whitewater festival in Oregon. Take to the river with other rafters and kayakers or try your hand at a new water sport. Events include inflatable kayak, hard shell kayak, raft, cat boat/cataraft, inner tube, and drift boat races as well as stand up paddle board and open canoe events. Join in the on-shore festivities with vendor booths, music, and beer garden. Participants can register online. Spectators can enjoy watching the races for free from the riverbank at Carter Bridge, and celebrate river stewardship and education.
