Riverpalooza 2024

Join us on May 18th for Riverpalooza, a celebration of the Apalachicola River, Bay, and Floodplain!

We’ll begin the day with a community, coastal cleanup sponsored by OceanAid 360. Collect trash however you like – walk around and find trash by foot, grab your bike and pedal around, paddle the kayaks along the shoreline, or take your boat out to collect trash by boat. We’ll have a dumpster at the Apalachicola Yacht Club (AYC) for trash and debris disposal. To qualify for a free raffle ticket, drop off your junk (the trash and debris you collected) by NOON at AYC.*

After the clean up, we’ll gather at the Apalachicola Yacht Club for a celebration with music, food, and a good time. Join us for fun and a chance to win exciting adventure gear. Music will be played throughout the day by Clayton Mathis, Chris Matechik, Flying Fish, and the Funky Taters.

In addition, we’ll be hosting a Riverpalooza Raffle that supports Apalachicola Riverkeeper’s advocacy, engagement, and outreach programs. Enter to win some great outdoor gear and other prizes!
