The annual gathering of rockers is happening yet again in 2024. Soon the area near the bridge in Three Forks will be transformed into an adult Funland for all those who rock, spreading nearly 30 bands over 3 action-packed days. It is a summertime event that you cannot miss.

This year's lineup includes some real heavy hitters in the rock world. Artists like Stone Temple Pilots, Hinder, Hoobastank,and Smile Empty Soul will take the stage and it will get loud.

How did RTR get its start?

According to the RTR website:

A bunch of old Rockers and Cowboys who got together in 2001 and created a tradition of music at the venue site that would be known in the future as The Bridge. New partners have come, old ones have left but through it all Rockin’ the Rivers has remained true to the idea of bringing excellent classic rock to the masses in a 3 day festival format.

Don't forget what REALLY makes the experience memorable: THE CAMPING. The camping is so much fun, with like-minded rockers enjoying a little "pre-funk" before and after the show.
