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

In its fourth year, Tuck Fest continues to grow and be rooted in the overall outdoor experience, giving guests of all ages and skill levels the chance to try something new. It’s about being active by taking part in a competition or simply enjoying the music and atmosphere. Featuring over 20 competitions in and around the river as well as live bands and participation from leaders in the outdoor industry, the festival invites athletes, spectators, and musicians to celebrate the outdoor lifestyle. – via TuckFest.org
