16 years ago a couple of friends thought it would be fun to “race” down Section 9 of the French Broad River and then have a party on it’s banks in Hot Springs, with any proceeds from the party going to charity. Well, as you can imagine a good time was had by all and the “party” has grown exponentially to a weekend outdoor and family music festival encompassing the entire Hot Springs Campground with national and local recording artists on multiple stages, a mountain bike race, whitewater raft race, kid’s village, arts and craft vendors, outdoor vendors, and great food.

The 16th annual festival is set for May 3-5, 2013 where the French Broad River meets the Appalachian Trail at the beautiful Hot Springs Campground & Spa. Festival begins at 4:00 on Friday, May 3 and ends Sunday, May 5. Early Bird tickets $70 online (www.FrenchBroadRiverFestival.com). See website, FB or Twitter for details.
