For the 44th year running, the River Rafting takes place the 30th of April, 2018, as part of the, now classical, Valborg (Walpurgis) celebration in Uppsala, arranged by Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science students. 10.00 marks the start of the River Rafting and from then 120 rafts, designed by the rafters themselves, can be viewed from the shore of Fyrisån.
However, The River Rafting, which is one of Sweden’s largest student arranged events, is only the final. From the 21st to the 28th of April, the River Festival is arranged on Campus Ångström. During the festival, the rafters build their rafts and have fun on the activity area and in pub tent with the rest of the visitors. On the second day of the festival the 22nd of April, the Duck Day is arranged, during which the festival is turned into a playground for the whole family and the profit goes to charitable foundations.
