2017 New River Canoe Race

The 36th Annual New River Canoe Race will take place on June 3rd. All proceeds go to support Friends of High Country State Parks’ mission to support our state parks. The event will begin at Zaloo’s Canoes in Jefferson, NC and travel five miles to New River State Park's Wagoner Road Access. This route is calm with no white water.

Boats can enter the water from 9 am to 1:30 pm.
Please note boats with children need to be in no later than 1 pm.

Registration is $10 per person, $5 for children, and $25 for family float (up to 6 people) for a single race. Every additional race is $5. Registration includes a FREE T-shirt and entry for a door prize.

This is a family friendly event with options to enter as a “Novice”, “Expert”, or “Championship Category”. The “Special” category is for those with any special needs.

Music, tubing, swimming, or hiking can all be found at New River State Park until the 3 pm Awards Ceremony. You do not have to race to enjoy these fun activities! Food from a local food truck will be available, but feel free to bring a picnic!
