Bridge Day Bridge Walk

For the walk of your life


Please Note that Bridge Day 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic so there will not be a Bridge Day Tour. However, we will still be offering regular tours on October 17, 2020. 


There is an annual event on the third Saturday every October to commemorate the 1977 completion of the New River Gorge Bridge. All four lanes of the Bridge are closed and the east side is open to pedestrians. Bridge Day consists of sightseers who walk the Bridge, BASE jumpers, rappellers, over 200 vendors, and a high line that is open to the public.
