Have you been surfing for the BIGGEST Whitewater Adventure in Idaho this summer? Then set your calendar for the first Saturday in June and make your destination The Big Water Blowout River Festival, Saturday June 3, 2017, on The Salmon River in Riggins, Idaho.

This is an action packed, family fun event with experienced Outfitters and Guides offering discounted raft trips all day. Come paddle HUGE Rapids, and enjoy the magnificent scenery and wildlife in the second deepest gorge in North America. Get your thrill seeking in, and see all the rafts, catarafts, kayaks, and dories go BIG and ride boat munching waves with names like The Pencil Sharpener, The Pancake Wave, The Big Easy and The Haystack.

Arrive at the city park in time to enter your specialty in the Dutch Oven Cook-off Contest; and be sure to show up for your opportunity to get a plate and taste the savory dishes yourself. Listen to great live music entertainment in the evening and soak up the first river day of the summer.

Riggins is centrally located just 2 hours south of Lewiston and 2.5 hours north of Boise on US Highway 95. THINK GREEN; save on gas and your impact on the planet by carpooling with your friends and river crew to this year's event.
