About The Harpers Ferry Outdoor Festival


The Harpers Ferry Outdoor Festival

and Tim Gavin Down River Race

Friday and Saturday June 6th and 7th, 2014

The festival will be held at

The Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship

The Harpers Ferry Outdoor Festival is a yearly event held to raise money for river and environmental conservation and to raise environmental awareness. The Festival is used to bring together participants, activists, and enthusiasts of the many outdoor activities in our area including kayakers & canoeist, rafters, hikers, bikers, campers, anglers, climbers, bird watchers and anyone else who shares our love and concern for our natural environment. We are here to promote the healthy and peaceful enjoyment of everything which our unique area has to offer.

We raise money and awareness by hosting a variety of events including the Festival, the Tim Gavin Down River Race, the Outdoor Film Festival and Swap Meet, and one or more river cleanups. Money raised through the events is donated to river and environmental conservation charities to support their ongoing conservation work and research. We do not raise money to promote any businesses.

The Harpers Ferry Outdoor Festival, Inc. is a volunteer organization formed exclusively for charitable purposes as specified Internal Revenue Code.

Money raised through the event is used to help Friends of the Shenandoah River, Friends of the Cheat, Friends of the Blackwater, and the West Virginia Rivers Coalition. Admission to the festival is only $10 and is free to anyone participating in the Tim Gavin Race or the Trail to River Run . Don’t miss the Whitewater Film Extravaganza!
