Seeking Ridgway RiverFest Sponsors

The Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership (UWP), the Ouray County nonprofit focused on protection and restoration of the Upper Uncompahgre River Watershed, is seeking sponsors for the 12th annual Ridgway RiverFest “Celebrating our Watershed” to be held on Saturday, June 29, 2019, in Rollans Park, Ridgway, Colorado. Sponsor’s contributions support the successful production of this fun outdoor festival, which brings attention to our local water resources.

The RiverFest is not only a fun, family-friendly riverside festival, but it is a key fundraising event for the nonprofit, which is involved in mine remediation projects, environmental restoration, water monitoring, and various community outreach events. As always, this year’s RiverFest will feature all-age river races, educational and cultural activities, live music, local food and beverages.

RiverFest information and sponsorship forms can be found at Sponsorship levels range from $100 to $1,000. In addition to being eligible for tax deductions, sponsorship donations can also garner a Colorado tax credit of 12.5 percent to 25 percent of the donation due to UWP’s designation as an Enterprise Zone nonprofit.

Vendor booths are also available at the RiverFest. Vendor information can be obtained by emailing

UWP depends on and appreciates all Ridgway RiverFest supporters who help connect the community and visitors to each other, our water resources and a love for the outdoors. For more information or to sign up to volunteer, call or email Ridgway RiverFest Coordinator Tanya Ishikawa at 970-325-3010 or
