Jam at the Dam

Catawba Riverkeeper’s live music event series is back! These family and pet friendly Friday nights at The Boathouse were a huge hit in 2021.

Bring your lawn chair, dancing shoes, and your appetite. Rotating food trucks will be on site at each event.

We encourage you to show up early to enjoy kayak/canoe/SUP rentals before the music begins. Kayak rentals begin at 4:30 PM and the food truck will be on site when you return from your paddle!

Music starts at 6:30 PM. Grab a beer at our indoor or outdoor bars. Look out for rotating beer specials.

Dates & Musical Acts (Food Trucks TBA)

Jam at the Dam is presented by Ally!


Join Catawba Riverkeeper at The Boathouse on the 1st Thursday of each month May – October (Kickoff on April 10) for rotating outdoor sports.

Each event will begin at 6:30 PM at the Boathouse in McAdenville, NC. After introductions, the group will paddle, bike, or run for about 45 minutes to an hour. Then, we invite you to enjoy good company, beverages, and snacks at the Boathouse.
