Love the New River

ACE has partnered up with The New River Conservancy in hosting this year’s event. The New River Conservancy is dedicated to protecting the waters, woodlands, and wildlife of the New River Watershed. They will be onsite at New River Gorge Festival providing education and doing raffles for some sweet giveaways. A number of organizations will also be on hand in support the New River Conservancy including Friends of New River, Department of Environmental Protection, WV Rivers Coalition and Piney Creek Watershed Association.

Demo Gear in One Location

Setting up the vendor midway right next to the ACE Adventure Waterpark allows us a unique opportunity to offer on water demos right next to the vendor booth. This is your chance to jump in a Jackson Kayak or Hala stand up paddle board and give it a try. Effort will be offering the opportunity to demo products from Badfish SUP, Astral (PFD), and Accent Paddles. Fly Fishing West Virginia will also be offering festival goers the chance to try fly casting and maybe learn a new skill.
