Tuck Fest is a multi-day festival that celebrates the outdoor lifestyle through competitions, exhibitions, demos, and live music at the U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC). The festival features a variety of outdoor competitions that include trail running, kayaking, biking, climbing, stand-up paddle boarding, obstacle, and adventure racing. The name “Tuck Fest” comes from the Tuckaseegee Ford and Trail, a historical landmark located at the USNWC.

In five years, Tuck Fest has grown from 14,000 attendees in 2013 to over 32,000 in 2017. New and unique outdoor experiences continue to be added year after year, including a cash purse competition on the world’s first Deep Water Solo Climbing Complex. In addition to outdoor competitions, the festival also offers musical performances each day including folk, bluegrass, roots rock, and Americana genres. Whether you live for the outdoors or are looking to experience the active lifestyle for the very first time, Tuck Fest offers you the chance to engage and explore by land, air, and water through competitions, demos, live music, and more. – USNWC.org
