FUNC Fest in Montrose, CO This Weekend
One of our favorite events of the summer is this Saturday, July 22 in Montrose, CO. The FUNC (Fun on the UNCompahgre) Festival in centered in the whitewater park in Montrose. Completed in 2015 the Montrose park is unique for its consistent flows that come as a result of irrigation water which means the park has good flows from March until October…the longest season of any park in Colorado. With 6 different surf waves there is something fun for every paddler. The Montrose park also makes a great place to learn to river surf.
Now in its third season the FUNC Fest will have a surfing contest in the morning and SUP Cross in the afternoon. Live music and a great bank-side festival will make this a really fun day. Hope to see you out there! -Mike Harvey, Salida, CO
