The Chattooga River Festival is a charitable 501(c)3 organization that was created to encourage environmental stewardship in conjunction with the responsible recreational use of the Chattooga River watershed. Its mission is to increase awareness of the importance of protecting and preserving the unique ecological environment and scenic beauty of this invaluable resource.
2012 marked the first, in what is anticipated to become an annual event with the 2014 festival already targeted to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Chattooga River Wild and Scenic designation by the United States Congress. The Paddle Faster Mud Run is scheduled for May 10th, 2014, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Chattooga River Conservancy and the local Long Creek Fire Department. The event will be held at Chattooga Belle Farm the morning of Saturday May 10th, at the end of the PFMR the day will continue to Chattooga Sounds Camp for an afternoon of education about our river, music and fun!
The Festival is organized by a coalition of interested parties including: Sponsors; Chattooga Sounds Camp, Chattooga Belle Farm and Southeastern Expeditions, Donations; Teamscum, Wild Water, NOC and Blue Ridge.
