The annual gathering of rockers is happening yet again for 2022. Soon the area near the bridge in Three Forks will be transformed into an adult Funland for all those who rock, spreading nearly 30 bands over the course of 3 action-packed days. It is a summertime event that you cannot miss.

This year's lineup includes some real heavy hitters in the rock world. Artists like Jefferson Starship, Quiet Riot, and Buckcherry will take the stage and it will get loud.

How did RTR get its start?

According to the RTR website:

A bunch of old Rockers and Cowboys who got together in 2001 and created a tradition of music at the venue site that would be known in the future as The Bridge. New partners have come, old ones have left but through it all Rockin’ the Rivers has remained true to the idea of bringing excellent classic rock to the masses in a 3 day festival format.

If you take into account that the pandemic shut down the show in 2020. That would make this year the 20th anniversary of the event. It is going to be a great show.
