National Whitewater Center – Tuck Fest
April 25 - April 28
WHAT DOES TUCK FEST MEAN?
The name “Tuck Fest” comes from the Tuckaseegee Ford and Trail, a historical landmark located on the property of the U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC). The ford is the first known crossing point along the Catawba River that was traveled by Native Americans and European settlers. The Ford allowed travelers coming from the western part of the state to reach the key intersection of the Tuckaseegee Trail and the great Trading Path, the area now known as Center City Charlotte. As the area continued to grow, the Ford became a crucial crossing point for travelers and traders during and after the Revolutionary War. Located next to the USNWC on the Catawba River, Sadler Island is a visible reminder of the Tuckaseegee Ford and its historical significance.
