In 2012 RiverFest will once again be held at Lake James State Park. Check below for a list of exhibitors for RiverFest 2012(for directions click here).
In 2005, Lake James acquired new land expanding them to over 3,000 acres. With the new property, a new swim beach has been installed, along with plenty of parking space, picnic pavilions and a new bath house; .
Catawba RiverFest is an annual celebration sponsored by the CVHA and a variety of local governmental and non-govermental organizations. The focus of the festival is to provide everyone with an opportunity to enjoy the benefits of the Catawba River as well as providing an opportunity for local organizations to highlight issues impacting the river. The festival features music from local artists, food, booths from local organizations, and a water derby.
The festival provides an opportunity for local organizations to provide demonstrations to the public and showcase the services they offer. The Carolina Raptor Center, Lenoir-Rhyne College, and the Catawba River Keepers were just a few of the organizations that have booths at our festival. If your organization is interested in having a booth at this year's festival please contact Ranger Nora Coffey at Nora.email@example.com or you can call her at the park- 828-652-5047.
