CanalFEST 2017

A celebration of ALL things outdoors at the Augusta Canal! Last year’s Augusta Canal 2016 “Find Your Park” Festival was such a success that everyone asked us to do it again. So we are! This year we’ve renamed it the “Canal Fest." This is Augusta’s chance to gather in our fabulous park, and celebrate all our canal and community have to offer together! We’re planning a full day of family fun, fresh air, fitness, and food. The Canal Fest includes races, tours, haunted trolley tours, sports demonstrations, live music, pet costume contest and much more.  We expect thousands to attend. We want to provide this to the River Region as a free event. Proceeds will support the Augusta Canal NHA recreation and education programs. 

Featuring musical performances by Bethany & the Southside Boys AND Eryn Eubanks & the Family Fold!

Also, performance by local youth groups such as the Augusta Junior Players and the DFA Jazz Band!

The Kroc Playground will be filled with kids activities! Learn how to fish with Project Healing Waters & Heroes on the Water. Bike Agility by Wheel Movement, kayaking, pet agility and more!


Enjoy the Augusta Canal on foot, by bicycle, canoe or kayak. Fish from the banks, watch for wildlife or relax on a guided tour aboard a replica canal cargo boat.
