The Nantahala Open is a fun non-competitive event based at Nantahala Falls and sponsored by Endless River Adventures.  It is open to all boaters no matter experience or ability or craft. The event consists of participants having fun running Nantahala Falls.  As the day goes on, winning categories start to develop – and typically Best freestyle through the Falls; Best self-rescue below the Falls; Most entertaining Move at the Falls; Cutest Run through the Falls and more. We video everyone’s runs and put together the main attraction of the Open: a video that is debuted back at Endless River Adventures Saturday night. The party continues with kid friendly events, food and live music.
