What is River Rally?

River Rally and COVID-19: The safety, health, and well-being of those joining us at River Rally 2020 and other events we host around the country is a top priority for our team. River Rally is moving to a virtual experience for 2020. Learn more on the River Rally website.

River Rally, hosted annually by River Network, is a 3+ day conference that provides an inspiring and energy-infused touchpoint for nonprofit groups from across the U.S. and beyond, as well as for agency and foundation representatives, industry innovators, philanthropists, academics, students, and community leaders. It includes over 90 learning opportunities including keynotes and plenaries, workshops, field trips, an awards ceremony, movies, social events and live music. Rally brings thought leaders and practitioners together to accelerate progress towards an equitable and sustainable water future.
