Sadly, we had to announce that Trashfest events from 2013 forward have been canceled.
Due to a number of factors, we concluded that the event could not achieve the high level of participation and fun to which we have become accustomed. As a result of regular river cleanings and stricter law enforcement, the river is remarkably clean. This is a Good Thing. This has been the primary objective of Trashfest since 1974. We hope that the river remains clean.
We will look forward now to a Trashfest one day that will refocus on the other objectives listed under Purpose in a way that will be even more fun. We will be evaluating alternative locations, dates, and activities. We do welcome your suggestions.
