Are you ready for a day full of water activities, a crazy river parade, and a retro rodeo? Well then be sure not to miss out on the annual Animas River Days in Durango, which happened in June.
The annual event that started in 1985 will happen once again on Saturday, June TBD 2022 at Durango’s Whitewater Park. Watch skilled individuals and teams compete in kayaking, surf competitions, boater cross, and raft sprints. At the end of the contest, there will be a river parade and a retro rodeo for all the participants so they can chill out and have a good time.
There’s a River Parade Viewing Party held at 6 pm at Santa Rita Park. Due to very limited parking, it’s recommended you use the Durango Transit Center’s parking lot at 250 West 8th Street and take a free shuttle to the park. There’s a live DJ to aid in the costumed festivities.
A shuttle is provided by Ride Responsible, 9 am to 8 pm, running every 20 minutes. We also encourage you to ride your bike or boat to the event!
Address: Santa Rita Park, Durango, CO 81301
Date: Friday – Saturday | June TBD 2022
