NOC's Guest Appreciation Festival is our way of saying "Thank You" to our patrons & guests! We have something for everyone. Snag the best in outdoor gear and apparel at stunningly low prices from our new and used gear sale with names including The North Face, Chaco, Dagger Kayaks, KEEN and more. Boaters, take advantage of our free shuttles for the Cascades and Upper Nantahala recreational releases. Learn a new craft from one of our craft vendors. Join in on the fun with our family-friendly games and activities including giant jenga, face painting, a bounce house, a live raptor show and more! Or, dance the night away to live music on the banks of the Nantahala River. It's a weekend of incredible sales, whitewater, outdoor fun and gratitude. See you there!
