Gila River Festival

12th Annual Gila River Festival:

September 22-25, 2016


The 12th annual Gila River Festival will explore the escalating tension between nature, man and rapid technological innovations. What does this mean for the future of the Gila River and its watershed?

Several events will speak to the imbalance between society and nature. The Gila Film Festival will feature films that compress or extend time, allowing us to perceive nature and technology in new ways.

As in previous years, the Gila River Festival will have expert-guided field trips, a Gila River kayak trip, a Gila River bus tour for less-mobile participants, a family-oriented puppet parade, and many more activities
