It’s back – The 4th Annual Elkhorn Creek Float Fest is set for Saturday, August 6 at Peninsula Park! Break out your festive tubes and sunscreen for a relaxing float along Kentucky’s loveliest and longest creeks. 

This family-friendly event takes place 11am to 5pm and includes music, food, prizes and an opportunity to learn about your local waterways.

Pre-registration includes general admission of $7 per adult and $5 for children 12 and under. Pre-registration also provides tube rental guarantee and each registrant will be entered to win one of our awesome summertime prizes (worth up to a $100 value).

We have added scheduled launching times every 30 minutes from 11am-2pm(final launch time). When purchasing your tickets, you will be required to select the time you plan to arrive.


Tube rentals will only be available through pre-registration. Single tubes are $10 and double tubes are $13. (Scroll all the way to the bottom of tickets to purchase add-ons.) We also welcome you to BYOT (bring your own tube), and of course – the bigger float, the better!

**Air is available on site.


Floating on Elkhorn Creek is from 11am to 5pm and open to participants to float down as many times as they wish. The float includes one entry point with a “lunchtime” exit point of approx. a 1 hour float with food trucks and a longer exit point of up to a 4 hour float. A wagon will be available for participants at the final exit point to ride back to entry. FLOAT TIMES WILL DEPEND ON THE WEATHER PRIOR TO THE EVENT. These float times are determined by the slowest waterflow of Elkhorn Creek.


Peninsula Park can be found near 104 Payne Avenue in Georgetown, KY. Visitors may enter through Payne Ave. and follow the signs leading to parking and check-in.

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


After you float, join us at the final concert of the Party on the Square concert series on Historic Downtown Georgetown. 2 Cool Band will be closing the street from 7-10pm, so you better put on those dancing shoes and get ready for a good time at this FREE concert in Downtown Georgetown.
