River Fest is an annual multi-day event that celebrates recreation and life on the Kennebec River. It also illustrates the potential of the Kennebec River Gorge as the future home of the Run of River Whitewater Recreation Area. Run of River would include a whitewater play park with enhanced rapids and waves; a comprehensive four-season trail system for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, and more; pristine fishing waters with improved fish habitat; and an array of parks for nature-based tourism.

River Fest activities include a chicken barbecue, a classic car cruise-in, bed races, a craft fair, a lobster bake, raft rides, fireworks, and more! Visit SkowheganRiverFest.com for a full events list.

River Fest is sponsored by Skowhegan Savings Bank and organized by Main Street Skowhegan, Skowhegan Savings, the Skowhegan Area Chamber of Commerce, Skowhegan Parks and Recreation, and the Run of River committee.

There is no general entry fee, but some individual activities may be subject to a fee. Visit SkowheganRiverFest.com for details.
