River Revelry--A Biodiversity Bash

The best end-of-summer party on the planet!

Lip-Syncers To Highlight River Revelry 2016; BBQ Battle, Live Music, Silent and Live Auctions, Boat Rides Also on Tap 

River Revelry 2016

River Revelry--A Biodiversity Bash has historically included about as many events as the Upper Coosa has endemic aquatic species (30, for the record). River Revelry 2016 carries on that tradition. This year's River Revelry will be highlighted by celebrity lip-syncers that will compete to be crowned the River Revelry Lip-Sync Champion.  The event will also include live music from Jerry on the Moon, silent and live auctions, boat rides on the river, beer from New Belgium Brewing Co., wine from Barefoot Wines & Bubbly and, of course, some of the best barbecue in the Coosa River Basin featured in our Barbecue Battle. Gates open at 6 p.m. and the revelry continues until 10. Scroll down to learn more. 


Barbecue Battle


The barbecue is the centerpiece of River Revelry as local restaurants and backyard barbecuers compete for the title of "Best Barbecue in the Coosa River Basin."  There is no entry fee to compete; just donate your delectable barbecue for River Revelry patrons to enjoy. A panel of certified barbecue judges will designate the winners and patrons will vote on the People's Choice award.
