The 2023 virtual Silent Auction has ended!

We have raised over $6,500 thanks to you, our supporters!

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, rafting trips, local festival tickets – and so much more! Browse the items and see what catches your eye!  The silent auction will again be virtual for Cheat Fest 2023.

The 2023 silent auction will be live for bidding from April 29th at noon to May 14th at 9pm on
