This year’s festival will be held on April 27th at the Eagle Rock Lodge, 49198 McKenzie Hwy, between milepost 34 and 35. Come, relax, and learn about the river and the history of this influential double-ended boat from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

  • For those planning to bring a boat to the show, please arrive early enough (approximately 9:00 a.m.) so that your drift boat can be courtesy towed from the parking area to the riverfront grounds.
  • If you plan to arrive by the river, plan to arrive by 10:00 am.
  • Those interested in joining an informal flotilla to Eagle Rock should plan to launch from Forest Glen Boat Landing at 8:00 and arrive at Eagle Rock Lodge at or around 10.
  • Boats can be pulled from the river, parked on the Festival grounds, and then re-launched for the takeout one-half mile downstream at Silver Creek landing. Please pre-arrange your shuttles.
  • There is no pre-registration or fee for showing your boats.
