    Please note: we currently work on plans for 20 releases per year. To give some sense of the "normal" look of a Washburn calendar, these are the events which disappeared due to Covid-19...

    *** SPRING ENVIRONMENTAL BREAK *** NO RELEASES *** 

    The Washburn Boaterfest was also cancelled but a cruise is happening each day.

    Please note: Although it is expected that all events take place, there is ALWAYS the possibility of cancellation prior to an event due to unforeseen circumstances – often too little or too much water!

    We update and send out e-mails / text messages, but if in doubt please call the Washburn Information Line.
