There’s something for everyone at the Cody Wild West River Fest!

 

The 2nd Annual Cody Wild West River Fest will be held in Cody, Wyoming, on August 22 – 24, 2014. The river festival is about bringing people together to celebrate one of Cody’s most exceptional natural resources, the Shoshone River.

 

The festival is fun for the whole family! Paddlers can show their stuff in the Stinking Water Sprint downriver race and the Stinking Water Slalom kayak event. Anglers can compete for bragging rights and cool prizes in the On the Fly fishing tournament. And people of all ages can play games on the river, eat some yummy food, wade in the water, try out a river sport, enjoy a bluegrass concert, and learn how healthy rivers and healthy communities go hand-in-hand.

 

So get out your fly rods, paddles, and PFDs for some fun in the sun – Cody style!
