Deep River News & Events

Deep River is host to many wonderful community events throughout the year. In the spring we have our Annual Fishing Derby, Easter Egg Hunt and Memorial Day Parade. In the summer we have outdoor concerts and movies in the park and our historic Deep River Muster, attracting musicians and visitors from all over the country. We end the year with great events such as Family Day and our Halloween parade and our Holiday Stroll in December.
