Welcome To The Upper Clackamas Whitewater Festival

We regret to inform you that due to the increasing concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, the UCWWF has decided to postpone this year’s event. 
The health of our whitewater community is our number one concern and although this is only the 2nd cancellation in our festival’s long history, we’re confident it’s the right choice! 
The UCWWF would like to thank our volunteers for all the hard work, time and dedication that has already gone into planning this year’s event as well as the racers, vendors, and sponsors who planned on participating.
Our team will be working hard over the next year to bring the whitewater community back together for 2021. Until then we hope that everyone stays healthy at home and we look forward to seeing you next May.

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 15th & 16th, 2021 will marksthe 37th 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!
