A Day with Gentle Giants
TVA and Tennessee Clean Water Network are happy to announce SturgeonFest 2020! This one-day event offers kid-friendly, close encounters with the “Gentle Giants of the deep.”
Lake Sturgeon are Tennessee’s largest fresh water fish and they can live to be over 150 years old. Come learn with us!
This family festival will feature outdoor educational exhibits along the shores of the French Broad River and the option of hand releasing a live sturgeon, showcasing these prehistoric creatures.
2020 DATE CANCELED
SturgeonFest 2020 has been canceled. We were unable to get our hands on sturgeon fingerlings, as the local and regional hatcheries that supply us with sturgeon hatchlings were unable to breed any this year.
However, SturgeonFest shall return next year with a big splash; that we can guarantee!
