The Cheat Fest online store will be open for business from May 1st to May 31st.  All items will be printed and shipped-to-order by a 3rd party – shipping fees will apply.


Cheat Fest Silent Auction

The Cheat River Festival Silent Auction is a mainstay of our annual fundraiser, where you’ll find items of all sorts: beautiful pieces donated by the famous juried artists of our Art Market, new and gently used paddling gear, handmade items from local crafters, recreational equipment of all sorts – and so much more! Browse the items and see what catches your eye!

The 2021 silent auction has ended – big thanks to everyone who made this year’s auction such a great success!  

Bid winners – click here to pay for your items.

Please add a note about which items you won.  Thanks and congrats!


Cheat Fest Ticket Donations

 

Donate the amount of cash you would have dropped on Cheat Fest tickets this year – all donations help fill the funding gap Friends of the Cheat must fill without an in-person festival.  Every dollar counts – and we’re so appreciative of your support!
