The annual Cheat River Festival is Friends of the Cheat’s primary fundraiser, with a big focus on the FUN part!  Cheat Fest brings together over 3,000 families, outdoor enthusiasts, environmental advocates, music fans, art aficionados, and volunteers on the banks of the Cheat River in celebration of the river we all love.  Proceeds from Cheat Fest support the work of FOC; from pollution abatement to paddling access, FOC has been making a measureable impact for over two decades.

Now, we are pleased to offer a means for Cheat Fest to work for your business, too.  Through a cross-promotional partnership with Friends of the Cheat, you can position your business at the confluence of fun and fundraising!  Reach a new audience, promote a special service, or simply reinforce your brand; we offer a variety of ways your sponsorship dollars can make a big splash.
