From 70th Annual Fibark Whitewater Festival Website:

2018 marks the 70th anniversary of FIBArk, the nation's oldest whitewater festival and Salida's signature event. Since 1949, every June during the Spring snow runoff, Salida has hosted FIBArk, "First in Boating on the Arkansas."

Located in Salida's historic downtown, Riverside Park is the center of FIBArk activity and entertainment. Food, arts and crafts, and industry vendors are available, as well as a beer tent, a carnival, and a state-of-the art amphitheater for this year's extraordinary musical line-up.

FIBArk is presented each year as a non-profit, community event made possible only by the generosity of hundreds of volunteers and sponsors.

Volunteers are needed for all aspects of the festival, including festival set-up and take-down, beer sales, event registration, information tent, and education at our recycling stations. Please view the website ( if you are interested in making this year's FIBArk the best yet! We appreciate any time you can give - from a couple of hours to all weekend!
