Tuck Fest is a multi-day festival that celebrates the outdoor lifestyle through competitions, exhibitions, demos, and live music at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, North Carolina every April. The three-day event features a variety of programming to engage the public through outdoor activity. Competitions are available through a variety of activities and sports including trail running, kayaking, biking, climbing, stand-up paddleboarding, obstacle and adventure racing, Deep Water Solo, and more. The name “Tuck Fest” comes from the Tuckaseegee Ford and Trail, a historical trading route that passes through the current Whitewater Center property.
The public is welcome to enjoy the live music, experience demos, check out the festival vendors, and spectate all the competitions free of charge. If you would like to participate in competitions, Tuck Fest race registration consists of a one-time flat fee that grants access to all races and competitions throughout the three-day festival.
