TNT Watersport’s WakeFest is a community outreach event designed to promote the sport of wakeboarding. Started in 2005 on Old Hickory Lake, it has ever growing popularity not only locally but in the southeast. With divisions starting as young Children and up to Professional, all ages and skill levels are celebrated in this grassroots tournament.
In 2012, Wakefest re-located to Pates Ford Marina at Center Hill Lake in order to expand and attract and even larger group of riders and spectators. The re-location was a success with over 75 riders and 2000 spectators making it one of the largest grassroots tournaments in the Southeast.
