Thank you to our 2016 Sponsors

The Coosa River Whitewater Festival and the Coosa River Paddling Club, a non-profit all volunteer organization, would like to thank all of our 31st Annual Coosa River Whitewater Festival sponsors. Without the help of our sponsors, the Coosa River Paddling Club would not be able to host the whitewater festival without their generous support!

To show our thanks to our sponsors, we ask you to show your support by considering purchasing goods and services from these businesses!



2015 Festival Design Contest

Each year the Coosa River Whitewater Festival invites artists to create a design which focuses on various aspects of the festival including: canoes, kayaks, paddling, and the Moccasin Gap Kayak Competitions. Natural aspects of the Coosa River, such as plants and/or wildlife have at times been incorporated into some of the past designs. This year the Coosa River Whitewater Festival dates are May 1 ā€“ 3, 2015.

Artists are invited to create original designs that are 8ā€ x 12ā€ in the medium of their choice. Original designs need to be submitted along with a digital image of the design on a CD. Please label your CD with your name and phone number. All submissions must be delivered to Southern Trails by April 1, 2015. There is NO ENTRY FEE. Best of Show will receive a $100 honorarium and will be featured on Festival T-shirts or other publicity. Additional awards may include 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place and Honorable Mention(s) at the committee’sā€™ discretion.

We are looking for originality, technical skill, creativity and suitability for the festival. To view past designs artists may visit Southern Trails in Wetumpka, AL where they are on display or view past designs on the 2015 Whitewater Festival website.

Please download the design criteria and submit your design before the April 1, 2015 deadline. View past t-shirt design winners for an example.
