We couldn’t have done it without your help.
A Paddling Festival Like No Other
Every year during the August long weekend, a bunch of people gather in a little town in Canada’s Northwest Territories for a weekend of paddling fun. A family-oriented celebration of the mighty Slave River with some of the best whitewater in the world, Paddlefest has opportunities for everyone to make a splash… and we want you to join us!
Watch Paddlefest in Action!
