Dolores River Festival; an Osprey Classic

2608614What better way to celebrate an Osprey Classic than with high waters and high spirits!

Osprey is proud to sponsor one of our local events, the Dolores River Festival. We really can’t think of a better way to kick off summer than with our local festival, as it brings together our small SW Colorado community for a day of festivities, music and river trips on our local river than runs through Dolores, a home of many Ospreylites!

This year will be better than the years before as we have high waters, good weather and of course, amazing music! (more…)

Osprey Packs Supports Upcoming Dolores River Festival

The Dolores River Festival is a community celebration of the Dolores River and the many ways it connects us to each other, the environment, and our resources. Osprey Packs has been a long-time supporter of this fun river event! Gates open at 10 am and live music will be performed all day.

Greater Dolores Action presents this annual event featuring local, regional and national bands, as well as, activities like the Fun Race, free raft rides on the Dolores River from Riverside Park to the Lost Canyon take-out, children’s activities, a down-river kayak race, the Zuke’s River Dog Contest, and the Crazy Costume River Parade. This community oriented event includes great food, beverages, information from our local organizations, merchandise and more. Admission is $5, and free for children 15 and under.

The Festival draws attention to the Dolores River Basin and the challenges faced by local communities trying to balance economic development and riparian resource protection. Greater Dolores Action earmarks a percentage of the Festival proceeds for river-enhancing activities such as garbage and debris removal, habitat creation and education – keeping your generous donation in the community. Your support of the Dolores River Festival shows your commitment to the preservation of one of the West’s great and scenic rivers.


Whether your pack was purchased in 1974 or yesterday, Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge.
