A New Attitude at the Bigfork, Montana Whitewater Festival – 38th annual event targeted to be more family-friendly

For nearly four decades, kayakers have taken to the water in Bigfork and made runs at the spring run-off during the annual Whitewater Festival .

It’s a celebration of the return of warm weather and big rapids, all taking place on the aptly named Wild Mile section of the Swan River.

This year, the 38th iteration of the festival – taking place on May 25 and 26 – promises big water and crowds, but also a change in attitude. While a festival that has taken place for so long will obviously go through various evolutionary stages, the core group spearheading this year’s event wants it to go in a different, family-friendly, kayaker-drawing direction.
