A full day of music and fun on the Watauga River to raise money for the Buckeye Knob acquisition.
River Jam is a fundraiser involved with raising money for the Carolina Climbers Coalition to help purchase the Farthing Tract on Buck Eye Knob in Sugar Grove, NC. This will be the first boulder field purchased by the CCC in the High Country, right here in Boone! This will aid in helping to preserve the land, the boulders, and support our local climbing community. There is a $20 cover with all proceeds donated to the CCC. The $20 will cover admittance, camping, food (hot dogs, chips), beer (Appalachian Mountain Brewery), music, river floating and more. This is an all age and family friendly event but PLEASE bring ID'S. Children under the age of 12 get in free. Further donations are encouraged. Bring your tubes, air mattresses, anything you can float on! We will have an inflation station for everyone to be able to inflate your tubes. While beer is included, we encourage you to byob as well. NO GLASS!! NO DOGS!! NO INDIVIDUAL FIRES!! No exceptions! There will be a 250 person cut off! Once people leave we will allow more people in. For those of you driving and coming from HWY 105 drop offs are encouraged at the top of Old Ford Trail to reduce shuttle congestion and wait times. We ask you to park at the Valle Crucis Elementary School at 2998 Broadstone Rd. Sugar Grove, NC 28679. There will be a shuttle service transporting everyone to the grounds located on Old Ford Trail in Valle Crucis approximately 1.7 miles from the school. **Absolutely no one is allowed to drive down Old Ford Trail besides performers, volunteers, and motorcycles!** Performances include the following: Blake Hornsby Deepfried Stardust The Heartless Gentlemen Gentri Open Soul Project Funkelstiltskin Inspiral Fire Tribe feat.
