Riverkeeper Beer Series- Pick, Paddle, Party at the Wedge
July 8 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join MountainTrue, Blue Ridge Orthodontics, and Mix 96.5 to help us pickup, paddle, party. We will be heading up a big river cleanup and float along the Swannanoa and French Broad Rivers on Saturday, July 8, followed by beers at the Wedge Foundation. All cleanup folks will get a free beer, raffle ticket for great prizes, Mix 96.5 sunglasses, and the first 10 to sign up get a limited edition Riverkeeper Beer Series t-shirt. The Wedge will release its Radler beer at the after party with $1 from every beer going to help us protect the French Broad River for the month of July.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
The cleanup is all ages and the Wedge post party is all ages, with 21+ able to drink
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
You will park you car at the Wedge Foundation location at 5 Foundry Street and we will be shuttled by French Broad Outfitters to the put in. The put in will be at the Biltmore Bridge on the Swannanoa River, unless the water is too low. We will paddle and clean down the Swannanoa to the French Broad River and take out of the river across from the Wedge.
What can I bring into the event?
Bring clothes you don’t mind getting wet and dirty. We will have gloves, trash bags and boats. If you have a boat, then bring it, but we can provide you a boat if needed. Most of our boats will be canoes with a couple kayaks. It is always a good idea to bring a change of clothes for the post party.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
