Cheat Festival has so much room for activities! Everything kicks off Friday evening with the Down River Race “Mass-Occurence” through the Cheat Canyon.  This year, gates open Friday night at 5:30 for EVEN MORE Cheat Fest fun.  Then, wake up bright and not-so-early Saturday morning to stretch those legs in the 5K foot race. Kid’s can join in on the fun too; on Saturday between noon and 5:00 the Kid’s Tent will be the place to be for our youngest river stewards. Throughout the day Saturday, vendors and local artists will be showcasing their goods, and the non-profit tent is always a great place to learn about local initiatives. Don’t forget to stop by the pavilion to check out this year’s Cheat Fest T-Shirt featuring artwork by our good friend JohnVictor. Before you leave, hang out with some Cheaters at the FOC booth, or bid in our silent auction!
