NEW! The Reno River Festival Champions Cup

 In 2020, we’re introducing a competition changer – the Reno River Festival Champions Cup. Professional Kayakers and SUPers will compete in slalom races, 4 on 4 boatercross, and freestyle surfing with the top 3 men’s and women’s performers winning a share of the $3,600 purse. The pros can compete in as many disciplines as they wish, but their top 3 best finishes will be used to select the Champions Cup winners. This Riverfest weekend, every second counts. 

About the Reno River Festival & the Truckee River Whitewater Park

 The Reno River Festival was born in 2003 to celebrate the completion of the Truckee River Whitewater Park and a multi-million dollar downtown revitalization campaign. It has been one of the favorite stops on the freestyle kayak circuit ever since. Each year the festival showcases the top-ranking whitewater athletes in the world. it is truly a unique venue for whitewater competitors with two world-class features and the fun and exciting downtown Reno culture. The festival routinely draws over 40,000 visitors who enjoy sunning on the riverbanks, watching pro kayakers duke it out, listening to live music, shopping merchandise tents, sampling food and beverage gardens, and learning to kayak in the beginner channel.

One of the greatest strengths of the Truckee River Whitewater Park design is that there are amazing features at all water levels. From 700 – 3,000 cfs hole 3 is fantastic, above 400cfs hole 5 provides every freestyle move in the book to the discerning playboater. The weekend of the River Fest is set to coincide with the annual peak runoff on the Truckee River, giving us the greatest chance for perfect flows.

The River Festival kicks off the summer season in Reno/Tahoe and features the best freestyle kayakers and has always been central to the worldwide marketing campaign for Reno/Tahoe.
