Paddle Festivals

In 2017 we will host at least 4 “Paddle Together’ festivals across Canada.

These will be in Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto and Halifax.

We would like to host many, many more and will work with anyone who wants to create a paddling festival no matter how big or small. IF you want a festival in your community please get in touch and we will do everything we can to help make it happen.

Check back here to see as more festivals and locations are added.

We have only a few rules about our festivals:

  1. They must be inclusive of all paddle craft – canoes, kayaks, dragon boats, paddle boards…if you can paddle it it should be part of the festival
  2. All festivals will be family friendly events. Our children are our future paddles so people of all ages will be welcome at all “Paddle Together’ festivals.
  3. Festivals must be free to attend – we want this to be inclusive so it can’t cost to actually attend a festival – charging for some services in a festival is fine as long as the festival main is open to everyone.
  4. Learning must be central to the festival – of each other, about paddling, about making paddles and canoes and about everything related to paddling.
