Elkhorn Creek Float Fest 

Spend the day floating on one of Kentucky’s loveliest and longest creeks during Georgetown’s first-ever Elkhorn Creek Float Fest! This exciting event takes place Saturday, June 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Peninsula Park. Rain date: Saturday, June 16.
Pre-registration is highly encouraged. Goodie bags are included in pre-registration ONLY. Day-of registration is at 10:30 a.m. Admission is $5 per person and includes “After Float Party" at Country Boy Brewing. The “After Float Party” is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m at Country Boy Brewing: Georgetown Taproom and includes light refreshments and one drink token (21+). NO REFUNDS.

Tube rentals are also available through registration. Single tubes are $7 a piece and double tubes are $10. You are free to bring your own tube, too!
Floating can take place anytime from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. There are two entrances to float down Elkhorn Creek. One entrance is about an 1.5 hour float and the second entrance is approx. a 2 hour float. Walking times from the take-in to take-out points are between an 8-12 minute walk. The last full float will go at 2:45 pm. You are welcome to participate in a static float on the creek, too.

Peninsula Park can be found at 629 N. Broadway St. in Georgetown. Visitors may enter through Payne Ave. and park in the available spots.

A food truck by Georgetown/Scott County Friends of the Park will be available for purchases. Personal picnics are welcomed. No littering at Peninsula Park or on the water.

IMPORTANT: Life jackets are MANDATORY. State law requires all individuals moving from point A to point B via water to have a life jacket onboard their vessel (tube). All children under the age of 12 years old MUST have a life jacket physically on their persons. 12 years and older are required to have their life jacket with them, whether on or attached to the vessel. ALL FLOAT FEST PARTICIPANTS MUST BRING THEIR OWN SIZE APPROPRIATE AND IN GOOD CONDITION LIFE JACKET. Please bring outdoor recreational appropriate footwear. A release of liability waiver will also be required for completion at the event registration table when arriving.

The Elkhorn Creek Float Fest is a kid-friendly event, but we encourage independent swimmers ONLY on the creek. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times!

BE ON TV: KET’s Downstream Production will be videotaping the Elkhorn Creek Float Fest activities for a Georgetown feature. Downstream is a travel adventure series about “Liquid Kentucky” featuring Kentucky’s rivers, lakes, and streams and how they are used in our bourbon, beer, and wine processes. 

This event is coordinated by Georgetown/Scott County Tourism and Georgetown-Scott County Parks & Recreation
