3rd Annual Bluegrass River Run & Outdoor Recreation Festival

  • Fort Boonesborough State Park (map)

Come join EKI and friends for the third annual Bluegrass River Run (BRR). The BRR is one of Kentucky's largest paddlesports event with an outdoor recreation festival, family-friendly float, and multi-discipline race that is the part of our Kentucky Waterman Series. All the paddle fun begins at Fort Boonesborough State Park (FBSP), home to the site of historic Fort Boonesborough, which was founded by the great frontiersman Daniel Boone. The float trip/race immerses participants in the impressive limestone geology of the beautiful palisades (canyon system) section of the Kentucky River. The event also features an outdoor recreational festival with tons of activities for all ages!  We will have plenty of canoe, kayak, and SUP for rent if you can't BYOB!
