2:30 pm – Water Trampoline and SUP Jousting

An annual favorite, jousting is BACK! That’s right medieval jousting combined with our lake fun!  Hop on the water trampoline or stand up paddleboard 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! INCLUDED IN TICKET

4:45 pm Canoegrass Family Photo

One of our favorite moments of the festival! Let’s gather all Canoegrassers in front of the Wagner Subaru Wagner Stage on the lake 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 lake for the final show of the weekend. INCLUDED IN TICKET
