2010 New Belgium FIBArk Whitewater Festival

With the Arkansas River over 5000 cfs its time to start making your plans to be in Salida, Colorado for the 62nd annual 2010 New Belgium FIBArk Whitewater Festival held June 17th - 20th.

This years events feature all the usual favorites like the Pine Creek Boater Cross, Hooligan Race, slalom, and all the downriver races. The Freestyle competition is part of the USA Freestyle Point Series and with the high water the Salida hole should be perfect.

The music line up this year is fantastic so go to to see all the bands and times. And always the local bars are out doing them selves with the late night shows.

Volunteering is a great way to show your support for the oldest and boldest whitewater festival. Volunteer for the weekend or for a day with many options to choose from. Jobs range from safety boating the Pine Creek Race to working the beer tent or helping with registration for the many events.

Volunteering as a safety boater for the Pine Creek Race waives the fee to enter the freestyle competition. Interested people should contact or Kate

Check the FIBArk website at for schedule of events, online registration, and contact information. Hope to see you on the Arkansas River in beautiful sunny Salida, Colorado June 17th - 20th.
