Race For the Rivers photo grid


For the 2022 race, we are having a limited festival with a food truck and kayak display from Bass Pro Shops.

All are welcome to come out on August 27, 2022 to enjoy great food and cheer this year’s racers across the finish line. The Festival kicks off at 11:00 AM and ends when the last paddler comes off the river, sometime between 3 and 4 pm. The festival is FREE to attend. Food and drink will be available for purchase.

*Please note that St. Charles does not allow pets on the park grounds during festival hours.*

Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Days

We are honored to have Bass Pro Shops return to the festival. They’ll be adding to the fun with a display showcasing some of their favorite kayak models.


We are in the process of selecting our food truck vendor for this year’s festival. Check back soon for more information.
