MAY • OKC Whitewater Festival

The 2nd annual OKC Whitewater Festival will take place May 18-20, 2018. Check back this winter for more information.

Athlete Information

OKC’s first Whitewater Festival took place May 20-21 and was a weekend of extreme racing and family fun!

This exciting whitewater celebration included the R4 Rafting National Championship and USA Canoe/Kayak Slalom trials, Extreme Canoe Slalom Trials, and a freestyle kayaking competition – as well as music, great food and beer specials in Big Water Grill, and special Monster Energy BMX Team exhibitions.

The R4 Rafting National Championship included a grueling downriver marathon, sprint race, head-to-head elimination, and slalom race.

USA Canoe/Kayak Whitewater Slalom trials determined which athletes represent the U.S. for the 2017 Slalom World Cup and the team is chosen to represent the U.S. at the 2017 World Championships in the newly sanctioned International Canoe Federation’s Extreme Slalom event, an exciting new race format unveiled last season by the ICF.

Experience the world of whitewater rafting and kayaking as we celebrate the opening of another exciting season at RIVERSPORT Rapids!

We hope you’ll join us!
