Animas River Days

Created with Sketch.

The popular summer event started in 1983 and centers around the Animas River, and is  returning for another fun filled weekend! Animas River Days features river sports like rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding, and more with great on-land activities, vendors, and comradery as well.

From June 3rd through the 5th, you’ll find most of the action at Santa Rita Park on the south side of town. You can’t miss it as many locals and visitors gather to watch the whitewater competitions. There are races, freestyle competitions, boatercross, and the river parade costume party finale.

The event is centered around community and healthy living and is supporting local companies with this year’s silent auction items. Also, they strive towards a Zero Waste event with reusable and/or sustainable items throughout the event.

Don’t miss out on this thrilling weekend as locals, visitors, pros, and amateurs throwdown on our beloved river. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions about this iconic Durango event.
