River & Trail

Outdoor Festivals in Harpers Ferry, WV

River & Trail Outfitters is a proud sponsor of The Harpers Ferry Outdoor Festival! This is a yearly event held in June 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.

The Harpers Ferry Outdoor Festival also host’s the Tim Gavin Down River Race, The Doah Cup Raft Race, The Outdoor Film Festival, 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. 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.

This is a volunteer organization and volunteers of all assets are needed! They are currently looking for a Media Head, T-shirt Design Competition Head and Postcard & T-shirt Head. If you are interested in being a part of the Harpers Ferry Outdoor Festival please contact Lisa Cullinane at lisaskayaking@juno.com with any questions. As always River & Trail looks forward to seeing you on this year’s shuttle ride!

See you on the river! -Kandee
