American Whitewater started the Deerfield River Festival in 1994 to celebrate the successful dam relicensing process that took place on the Deerfield River 1993. The event focuses on bringing people to the area to enjoy a weekend of outdoor activities while showcasing whitewater paddlesports and raising funds and membership for American Whitewater. The main festival activities take place on Saturday afternoon/evening and provide entertainment for both paddlesport and non-paddlesport enthusiasts young and old.

The Whole Enchilada
Bring your bike for the fifth annual Charlemont Trail System (CTS) Whole Enchilada bike ride on September 19th! When the Whole Enchilada started the first year the CTS was made, the idea was to bike all the trails - then only 15 miles. Now the CTS has closer to 45 miles of trails, but the goal is still to ride them all in one day! Don't worry though - there's shorter rides if you don't want to do all of the trails.
