Tuck Fest, the Whitewater Center’s annual multi-day festival celebrating outdoor lifestyle and music returns to Charlotte on October 1-3 this year. Rescheduled due to the pandemic, Tuck Fest normally takes place in the spring, but will now highlight the U.S. National Whitewater Center’s fall schedule.

Featuring a bevy of outdoor competitions like trail running, kayaking, biking, and climbing, the festival also showcases a consistent lineup of Americana, folk, bluegrass, and rock acts each year. Since 2013, the festival has grown tremendously with over 48,000 attendees in 2019.
