Lynchburg Launch of the James River Batteau Festival

June 15 @ 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 34th year and continues down the James River on an eight-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!
