Kern River Festival 2020 Canceled

It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the conclusion we must cancel this year's Kern River Festival. Since our water is so low, The Brush Creek Extreme race will not be possible, as well as the downriver and any raft races. Even the Slalom would be compromised. We have all discussed the possibility of having some events later in the summer on the Lower section of the Kern, so stay tuned since we will post when things start moving in that direction. In the mean time... keep paddling!
