Host an Event

Interested in hosting an event?  We’d love to have you! Here are a few considerations:

Organizations partnering with the White River Festival embrace the core festival messages:

  • Our rivers and streams connect our communities and our lives.
  • Our rivers are dynamic systems – they change and we change them with our actions.
  • Our rivers and streams are invaluable to our economy, our health, our wildlife, and our rejuvenation.

Events reflect those messages and seek to do the following:

  • Celebrate the river
  • Inspire participants
  • Foster collaboration and build community
  • Create positive energy
  • Encourage reflection
  • Seek solutions
  • Offer fair and balanced viewpoints and provide opportunities for fair and balanced discussions
  • Honor the principles of civil discourse

Festival organizers envision festival event participants leaving events inspired and energized to learn more about our rivers or take action that positively impacts water quality.

Finally, event hosts agree to promote the event to the public and to incorporate core messages into their festival event. This can be woven into remarks/introductions, even program/brochure, or signage at the event.
