The 2019 Open Canoe Nationals for Downriver are being hosted on the Arkansas River in Colorado. The Whitewater Open Canoe Downriver National Championships will be near Salida Colorado from June 19 through June 23, 2019  We plan on having exciting and enjoyable event and look forward to meeting you in our backyard. The dates selected are Wednesday through Sunday of the week following the FIBARK Festival.

The average flow for these dates is around 2,000 cfs. In case of extremely high flows we can shift the events to other stretches of river. For instance, the Sprints could be through Salida and the long race could begin below Bear Creek. There are other possibilities as well.
