Life doesn’t have to be so serious, right? The answer is no! We are adding several new riverfront shenanigans this year in the spirit of our producer, Tomfoolery Outdoors. Canoegrassers will be shouting the mantra to Live Active, Laugh More, Inspire All.

2017 Schedule of Riverfront Tomfoolery


Saturday August 5

  • 9:30 – 10:30 am – Wake Up Canoegrassers Yoga

Sonja Ostendorf, Kai Yoga, is offering a free all levels yoga class. Shake off the cobwebs from the night before and get your mind, body and soul ready for the river life. Bring your own mat. A limited supply of yoga mats are available for use. Sessions held at Wagner Subaru Camp Stage.

  • 2pm Canoe Jousting

An annual favorite, Canoe Jousting is BACK! That’s right medieval jousting meets canoeing!  Hop in a canoe and battle the opposition in a friendly match to see who can be the last one standing.  Competitors will be required to wear a life jacket.  We like a little tomfoolery in the mix so wear the craziest costume you can find to distract your competition and give those on the bank a good laugh!

  • 4:45 pm Canoegrass Family Photo

One of our favorite moments of the festival! Let’s gather all Canoegrassers in front of the river stage and take the epic family photo that we all know and love. Bring anything that floats, squirt guns, beach balls and the best smile of the weekend. Hang out on the river for the final show of the weekend on the Wagner Subaru River Stage featuring Blue Caboose.

Sunday August 6

  • 8 – 9:30 am Farewell Continental Breakfast sponsored by Son of a Biscuit Food Truck

We are excited to offer a chance for us to gather one last time at Canoegrass thanks to Son of a Biscuit Food Truck from Dayton, OH. They are providing a Farewell Continental breakfast for all ticket holders. Join us for a farewell message and food before you travel home on Sunday. Farewell message by Tom Helbig, Tomfoolery Outdoors begins at 8:30 am. Breakfast will be served at red/white party tent nearest Wagner Subaru River Stage.
