NOC’s Guest Appreciation Festival is our way of saying “Thank You” to you! We have something for everyone. Snag the best in outdoor gear and apparel at stunningly low prices from our new & used gear sale – brand names include The North Face, Chaco, Dagger Kayaks, KEEN and more! Boaters, take advantage of our free shuttles for the Cascades & Upper Nantahala recreational releases. Learn a new craft from one of our craft vendors. Join in on the fun with our family-friendly games & activities including corn hole, giant jenga, face painting, a bounce house, a live raptor show, and more! If dancing is your thing, groove the night away to live music on the banks of the Nantahala River.
