Ocoee Carnage Party Celebrates Boating Biffs


- Advertisment -

Like carnage? It doesn’t get any better than the annual Ocoee Carnage Party, an annual event where raft guides, boaters, and outdoors enthusiasts around the Ocoee River in Tennessee come together to celebrate the year’s whitewater carnage and biggest biffs on the Ocoee River. And on such a classic and popular run, there’s always plenty, from wraps and swims to full-on raft enders and dump trucks.

The event culminates with the viewing of the Ocoee Carnage Video, produced by Will Phillips, also the founder of popular Instagram account Gnarnivores.

The event, held September 3 in Murphy, North Carolina, has been going on for nearly 20 years, but this year marked Phillips’ second year hosting and organizing it. And he did so in fine fashion, eclipsing last year’s record turnout of 500 attendees. “This year we expanded the event to include vendors and sponsors, so it turned out great,” he says.

He adds it’s not a contest, but rather a gathering to celebrate mishaps on the river.

“It isn’t really a competition between competing carnage clips,” he says. “Instead, everyone sends in the best carnage clips that they acquired throughout the year and then we make a compilation video of all the best submissions. Then everyone comes to the event to watch the premier of the video.”

Stay tuned for this year’s compilation, and meanwhile visit Gnarnivores on IG for more.
