Launch of the James River Batteau Festival

June 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Kick off the James River Batteau Festival at the Lynchburg Launch Festival!
The James River Batteau Festival will launch from Lynchburg, Virginia for the 33rd year and continue down the James River on an 8 day journey to Maidens Landing near Richmond using replica late 18th & early 19th century, flat bottom, cargo boats called Batteau.

Watch the launch of the replica batteaux (plural for batteau) as they begin their journey down the river, and enjoy activities highlighting the history and ecology of the James River. Join us for live traditional music, environmental educational activities, craft activities  for children, a petting zoo, demonstrations, and local food trucks!

Bring a kayak or canoe and see the Launch from the perspective of the Batteau!

History and recreation come together to create the ideal destination for outdoor fun in southeastern Pennsylvania! Valley Forge National Historical Park has launched an initiative to raise awareness about the Park’s trails and outdoor recreation resources. The ’78 Mile Challenge encourages visitors to walk, hike, run, pedal, or paddle through the scenic 3,500-acre park, logging their miles along the way. The name and the 78 miles are a reminder of the Continental Army’s encampment at the site in 1777-78. www.valleyforge.org
