USNWC’s popular Green River Revival has been canceled. Jeffrey T. Wise, Chief Executive Officer of the U.S. National Whitewater Center released a statement:

“COVID-19 is top-of-mind for many in our community and the Whitewater Center has been carefully monitoring the developing situation. We recognize and share concerns about how COVID-19 impacts our community. We have been actively evaluating whether this Saturday’s Green River Revival should continue as scheduled. Accordingly, based on the current information available, we have decided to cancel this year’s event.

As with all public health matters, the Whitewater Center relies on information and guidance from health and safety professionals and public health officials. The COVID-19 situation is currently evolving in a rapid and unknown manner. In an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to cancel Green River Revival at this time.

We appreciate the community’s patience and we will continue to communicate as best we can, and we encourage anyone with questions or concerns to contact us. If you are interested in reading more about the Whitewater Center’s ongoing efforts and approach to this particular public health issue, please visit the news section of our website.”

The U.S. National Whitewater Center’s popular Green River Revival was supposed to be headlined by soul band Lee Fields and The Expressions with support from Joslyn & The Sweet Compression this year.

The Green River Revival, a free St. Patrick’s Day celebration best known for the glowing green river, is also home to the Color Me Green 5K series. The event usually features outdoor activities, food, local beer, and yoga.
