Tallulah Fest 2015 - The Wildest Kayaking Party of the Year
The festival is put on by BBB Paddling, which is “a band of adventurers bound by the outdoors, broken guitar strings, and empty beer bottles,” according to their website. And this is exactly what you get at Tallulah Fest, a weekend filled with free spirit, kayaking and a little bit of craziness.
Celebrating the release of the Tallulah Gorge, this young festival has grown from the hundred paddlers at its first event to several hundred boaters and enthusiasts years later, demonstrating the love of the river and celebration of its release during the spring. And the festival shows no signs of slowing down
“Our biggest worry then (in 2011) was making sure there was enough beer for everyone”
-Will Oliver, cofounder of the festival-
This year’s festival is happening April 11th, 2015, hosting already the 6th edition and yet again kayakers, rafters, and onlookers will converge on the Tallulah Gorge and brave their skill against the infamous class V Tallulah River. Don’t miss one of the wildest whitewater events of the year.
