Tuck Fest


  • 5000 Whitewater Center Parkway Charlotte, NC, 28214 United States (map)

Tuck Fest is a multi-day festival that celebrates the outdoor lifestyle through competitions, exhibitions, demos, and live music at the U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC), located in Charlotte, North Carolina. The festival features a variety of outdoor competitions that include trail running, kayaking, biking, climbing, stand-up paddleboarding, obstacle, and adventure racing. In six years, Tuck Fest has grown from 14,000 attendees in 2013 to over 55,000 attendees in 2018. The name “Tuck Fest” comes from the Tuckaseegee Ford and Trail, a historical landmark located at the USNWC.

For guests who are interested in simply experiencing the sights and sounds of Tuck Fest, there is no ticket or registration required (standard parking fees apply). We welcome everyone to enjoy the live music, demos, and view all of the competitions free of charge. If you would like to participate in one race/competition or all 35+, Tuck Fest race registration is a one-time flat fee that grants access to all races and competitions throughout the four day festival. Activity Passes to experience the USNWC’s 30+ available outdoor activities, as well as food and beverage options, can be purchased online or on-site.
