MuRF 2019 Schedule of Events

What’s up everyone?? Here we are, just days away from the Muddy Rivers Festival 2019.  Our festival is happening March 22-24 and we are so excited to share our world with you all.  As I’ve said before, the fest is happening down in the gorge for the first time ever.  The take out for the Class 3 gorge run will be the festival grounds, 2947 Spring  Creek Rd, Cookeville, TN.  

The ramp is built now and is more epic than ever.  The stage is ready too. All thats left is some decorating and setting up our vendors.  We’ve got Saucey Girls food truck coming out to feed us for the weekend, Dr Coffee setting up her coffee ambulance, Hix Family Farm selling good craft beers, Monster Energy sampling out some energy drinks, and a ton of other cool surprises!

The weatherman is calling for clear skies, temps in the sixties, and a big full moon. Here’s what to expect as far as the schedule is concerned:

Thursday March 21 — Volunteer Set Up Day. Do you want to help set up for the festival? It gets you free entry and camping for the weekend.  Just show up and let us know you’re here to work.  All volunteers must commit to at least one 3 hour gate shift too.  Today we’ll be setting up the stage decorations, Installing festive lights and lighting up the ramp/ freestyle area.
