West Forks Riverfest 2023
A Celebration of Community, Outdoor Adventure, and Giving Back.
West Forks Riverfest is an all-ages event celebrating all that the West Forks area and lifestyle has to offer. Located between the West Forks Family Campground and Brookfield “Ballfield” areas on Saturday and Sunday, August 12th and 13th, from 11 A.M. to 9 P.M. The West Forks Riverfest is the perfect way to spend a weekend by the river. You don’t have to be whitewater folk to enjoy this awesome time. Our mission is to create a safe, enjoyable and unforgettable weekend event for families of all ages. We offer a diverse range of activities such as local food vendors, crafts, informative speakers, live music, raffles, giveaways, area clean-up, outdoor equipment vendors, Maine Whitewater Championship Awards, and much more. At West Forks Riverfest, we also have a strong commitment to giving back to our local community by donating a portion of our proceeds to the Dead River Outdoor Club/Guide Olympics. With a $10 donation at the entrance, our goal is to establish a summertime tradition that will showcase the Forks area for many years to come.
