Bring your family and friends to this family-friendly event, co-sponsored by the National Park Service, 11th Street Bridge Park and the National Cherry Blossom Festival.
First-ever Anacostia River Festival will offer free kayaking and canoeing, learn-to-row and learn-to-paddle sessions conducted by members of the Anacostia Community Boathouse Association, musical performances, environmental and live birds of prey demonstrations, a boating safety workshop conducted by the US Coast Guard, tours of historic Anacostia, and much more.
Cornellians have a long tradition of boosting people-powered recreational boating on the Anacostia River. This tradition goes back to the founding of the Organization for Anacostia Rowing and Sculling (OARS of DC) in 1988, donation of a training barge by Olympian Don Spero Cornell ‘61 and his wife, creation of the Washington Metropolitan Interscholastic Rowing Association and its high school championship regattas on the Anacostia by Tom Spooner Cornell ‘94, and now includes Harlan Trevithick Cornell ‘10, Executive Director, Juniors and Adaptive Rowing Programs, Capital Rowing Club.
Join us at the Riverfest, discover new opportunities on the Anacostia, and keep this Cornell tradition alive. Watch for further details, including parking, online and in the April 1st edition of CCWNews.
