Early Registration Ends May 6 For The 19th Annual Neches River Rendezvous


Early registration for the 19th Annual Neches River Rendezvous ends May 6.

The Rendezvous will be held 7:30 a.m. on June 4, and will be a “scenic 10-mile trip on the Neches River” according to the Lufkin Chamber website.

Early registration for one person in a kayak, one meal ticket, and one t-shirt is $35. Early registration for two adults and one child 12-years-old or younger in a canoe or two people in a kayak, two meal tickets, and two t-shirts is $50.  

Participants must have and provide their own life jacket. Canoes and kayaks must either be provided by participants or rented before the event begins.

The Chamber asks for participants to register as early as possible because space is limited 300 participants.

The Rendezvous is a family-oriented experience with a hamburger lunch served after and free shuttle service provided to and from the river, and it was created to advertise the outdoor wilderness adventure of East Texas by using the Neches River to frame a typical paddling journey.

The presenting sponsor is Lufkin Convention & Visitors Bureau, and other sponsors include Texas Timberjack, Cherokee, Haglund, Consolidated Communications, and Duncan-Two.
