• Competitions and concerts highlight Tuck Fest


    Celebrate the outdoor lifestyle through competitions, exhibitions, demos, and live music at Tuck Fest, a four-day festival happening April 19-22 at the U.S. National Whitewater Center.

    The event will feature over 35 competitions in and around the river including trail running, kayaking, biking, climbing, stand-up paddle boarding and adventure racing.

    In its sixth year, the festival continues to grow and gives guests of all ages and skill levels the chance to try something new.

    Registration is a one-time flat fee of $40 that grants access to all races and competitions (you may participate in as many Tuck Fest races and competitions as you’d like throughout the weekend). 

    There will also be plenty of live music. Headlining artists include Lettuce on Thursday, Deer Tick and John Moreland on Friday, Shakey Graves and Susto on Saturday, and The Infamous Stringdusters and The Wood Brothers on Sunday.

    There is no fee for spectators coming to watch the events and bands. Parking cost $6.

    Fun festival fact:  The name “Tuck Fest” comes from the Tuckaseegee Ford and Trail, a historical landmark located at the USNWC. The Ford is the first known crossing point along the Catawba River that was traveled by Native Americans and European settlers.
