Thank you for considering hosting an event as part of the Annual White River Festival, a project of the White River Alliance (Alliance). We look forward to working together to build a terrific event calendar and ensure that your event and organization receive a boost from being involved in the Festival! Once you've entered your event information below, we will verify that events meet the criteria, proofread and edit descriptions as necessary, and then post to the Festival website. You will need to send an image to accompany your event description. This can be a logo or even a stock shot. Please send your image to

As a reminder, these are 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.
Event hosts are asked to create events that reflect core Alliance and Festival values. Events should...
  • 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
Events should align with the vision of the Alliance by 'creating positive change through projects and educational initiatives that improve the White River Watershed for all users'.
