    What we're about

    10-14 August 201

    This year we will be in the Community Center, 2nd floor, 620 6th Avenue.

    The Ouray Canyoning Festival offers a great opportunity to discover new canyons, make new friends; to share ideas and information; and to learn new skills and techniques from other canyoneers.

    During Canyoning Festival volunteers organize canyoneering trips each day, intended for canyoneers of various skill levels. Other rendezvous activities typically include: skills workshops, gear demos, slide and film presentations, gear swaps, door prizes and raffles.

    The 2015 Ouray Canyoning Festival was a huge success attracting over 100 canyoners from around the country and the world. The town of Ouray was suitably impressed and as a result have decided to support the event this year by organizing the third annual Ouray Canyoning Festival. Sort of a summer version of the Ouray Ice Festival.

    Additionally, training opportunities will be offered before the festival.

    So make your plans now. We look forward to seeing in Ouray.
