The Upper Clackamas Whitewater Festival was first held in 1984 by an informal group of river lovers. It’s a weekend of fun, exciting, and safe whitewater activities. May 20th & 21st, 2017 marks the 34th anniversary of this great event on the Upper Clackamas River. The goal is to provide you with a place to learn, to challenge, to bond and simply spend a GREAT weekend with your fellow boaters. Please consider volunteering for the festival!
