Registration Information

Ways to Register

  1. Onsite registration is available the day of the Plunge starting at 12:30 p.m. with cash or check only.

Registration Fee

The early registration fee is $15 prior to Jan. 16, then it increases to $20.

Winter Hats

Please register by the early registration deadline, Jan. 16, to secure your Plunge winter hat, while supplies last. To receive a winter hat, registrations must be paid in full, regardless of registration method. All winter hats are mailed to the address supplied during the registration process.

Cancellation Policy

The Lewisburg Downtown Partnership relies on the guidance of the Lewisburg Fire and Rescue Squad to determine river safety. In the event of unusually high water or swift currents, the LDP will cancel the Plunge rather than risk participant safety.

Cancellation Policy: Any participant who has prepaid the registration fee prior to cancellation of the event will be issued a registration voucher for next year's event. No refunds will be issued. Questions regarding this policy, please contact the Lewisburg Downtown Partnership.
