Well, that's a wrap on this year's EPCOR RiverFest - see you on the river in 2019! Over 2,200 paddlers on the river (and nearly 2,400 in attendance) celebrated the beautiful North Saskatchewan River Valley at EPCOR RiverFest. Thanks to our amazing sponsors, volunteers, exhibitors, outfitters, event-goers and everyone else who came together over a love for the river valley! Check out some of this year's news coverage! 2019 dates will be announced in the spring.


EPCOR RiverFest is a celebration of our North Saskatchewan River and the River Valley park system. Each location features a different variety of outdoor activities all geared up to help get you active in our river valley and on the North Saskatchewan River. 

Participants purchase tickets to float on the North Saskatchewan River, explore free land activities that you can do in the river valley, and connect with river-valley related businesses, organizations, and clubs.
