"Tuck Fest" Ushers Thousands For Beer, Music, & Rapids

Posted: Updated:
The 2nd annual "Tuck Fest" took over the US Whitewater Center this weekend. The festival celebrates the outdoor lifestyle through competitions, live music, food, and more.

"Tuck Fest is basically an outdoor sports festival. The whole idea is to celebrate that outdoor lifestyle," said Jeff Wise, CEO of the US Whitewater Center.

The entire weekend saw close the 30,000 visitors, with nearly 14,000 today.

People who went to the festival saw a variety of competitions like a 5K trail race, stand-up paddleboarding, and more than 20 different water competitions.

For the non competitor, there were 15 bands that helped people dance the weekend away.

"Having live music and some good name bands," said Brett Calamari, who attended the festival.

The name "Tuck Fest" comes from the Tuckaseegee Ford and Trail, which is a historical landmark located at the Whitewater Center.

"It's what all of us were born to do, play outside and play in the creeks," said Wise.
