2023 FUNC Fest Highlights

Another year of FUNC Fest is in the books! The competitors were at the top of their game, there were tons of activities for the whole family, with good food and excellent music. It was truly an epic celebration of our beloved Uncompahgre River.

We would like to thank all of the musical talents who performed, all the vendors who shared our local scene with attendees, volunteers, and everyone else who joined in the festivities to make this event a success.

About Montrose Water Sports Park

The Water Sports Park (WSP), located on the Uncompahgre River in Riverbottom Park in the heart Montrose’s premier parks complex, consists of 1,000 feet of river channel. The WSP is one of the largest in the state of Colorado and one of the few in the U.S. to be accessible by ADA standards. Designed with all citizens in mind, from ankle waders to expert kayakers, the WSP is complemented by terraced spectator and beach areas, allowing a safe space for viewing right on the river. Sustained irrigation flows on the Uncompahgre River make the park an enticing destination through late summer, long after other parks have lost their luster.
