The third annual 2017 NoliFest was so much fun on and off the river! We were blessed with rain in the week leading up to the event and had some high river levels to enjoy the might Nolichucky River. River trips were enjoyed by many paddling groups both in the gorge and on the lower . We saw river levels from over 7,000 CFS on Friday to 2,400 CFS on Sunday!

There was lots to do off the river too for folks attending the event! The vendor area was filled with many paddling and outdoor businesses/organizations representing. Several tasty food vendors were on site. There were many other activities going on throughout the weekend: One Wheel demos/race, SUP jousting, bands, trail run, kids nature scavenger hunt, SUP yoga & race, AT hike, kids fishing derby, fly fishing lessons & fireworks. There was a ton of fun to be had for sure! USA Raft & Mountain River Guides did a stellar job of hosting and organizing everything!

The Jackson Action Wagon was proud to be a part of NoliFest again this year! It has been amazing to watch this event grow each year! The J.A.W. had a great demo/showcase event for Jackson Kayak on Saturday of the festival! We raised $782 for Camp Bays Mountain in a raffle to give away a #JKAntix!! Congrats to Will Saylor as our lucky winner of the new boat. 🙂

Nolifest for the win! Enjoy this quick recap video and see you next year:
