Event Item:

The Bigfork Whitewater Festival will be celebrating its 42nd year! We welcome you to join us for this historic, local event as either a competitor or spectator. 

Bigfork, Montana is located on the north end of Flathead Lake, where the Swan River spills into Bigfork Bay. The last mile of the Swan River, known as the "Wild Mile", is a class IV section of whitewater. This beautiful and challenging whitewater venue has a scenic nature trail paralleling the north side, giving spectators front row seats for some of the best whitewater action in the area. 

The Wild Mile also flows through downtown Bigfork, which offers an eclectic variety of restaurants, shops and galleries.
