About the Dolores River Festival
The Dolores River Festival, held annually on the first Saturday in June, is a community celebration of the Dolores River and the many ways it connects us to each other, the environment, and our resources. This family event features world-class live music, raft rides, kayak races, a river parade, and educational activities for all ages. The Dolores River Festival is a key Four-Corners area summer event. It draws attention to the Dolores River Basin and the challenges faced by local communities trying to balance economic development and riparian resource protection. Greater Dolores Action earmarks all sponsorship donations for festival funding and for river-enhancing activities such as garbage and debris removal, habitat creation and education – keeping your generous donation in the community. Your support of the Dolores River Festival shows your commitment to the preservation of one of the West’s great and scenic rivers.
