Back this year is the wildly popular Hooligan B.Y.O.B "Build Your Own Boat" Competition--as much fun to watch as it is to race! Due to low water the Brush Creek Extreme Slalom & Downriver Races have been canceled..
The traditional TJ Slalom & SUP race and new this year -- a downriver Triathlon race. Back again this year is a new addition to the events, a Standup Boarder-Cross will be held in Riverside Park in downtown Kernville on Sunday; there is sure to be plenty to keep you entertained as you hang out on the banks of the mighty Kern. All events have easy access for boaters and spectators.
Please see the Kern River Festival Map for more information.
