NH’S WHITEWATER FESTIVAL IS BACK!

WINNI RIVER DAYS

JUNE 21 - 23, 2019

Its time to mark your calendars for Mill City Park’s signature river celebration!

The formula is still the same: free music, beer garden, 3 whitewater events and camping all within DOWNTOWN FRANKLIN, NH!

Keeping true to the vision, this event is free for spectators and visitors to enjoy! Whether it’s the whitewater racing, the vendors or the free live music, duck race, clinics or the silent auction, we believe there will be something for everyone at this inaugural event!

All profits are going to further Franklin’s whitewater park nonprofit, Mill City Park.

PRE-REGISTER FOR RACES & CAMPING!
