Registration

Registered for Paddlefest last year? You can login to speed up registration!
Select a registration option below and click “Login” at the top of the registration form.

The information on this page is from Paddlefest 2022. It’s accessible for reference as our upcoming event in 2023 will likely be similar. Details will be announced closer to Paddlefest 2023.

Which registration?

If you want the full Paddlefest experience, including any of the water activities, then you should choose the Paddler Pass. If you would prefer to stay on terra firma–aka dry land–then the Land Activities Pass is perfect for you.

Check the table below to see what’s included in each registration type.

What’s not included?

Your Paddlefest registration is your entry to the event itself and doesn’t include accommodations, travel, or meals for the entire weekend. While we do allow paddlers to use equipment provided by the Fort Smith Paddling Club during the Saturday and Sunday activities, we do not rent or reserve equipment for participants. If possible, you should bring your own equipment with your name clearly marked.

Adult Paddler Pass: $75.
Youth Paddler Pass: $40.
Adult Land Activities Pass: $45.
Youth Land Activities Pass: $30.
Flatwater Friday Only Pass: $25.

Now that Paddlefest 2022 is over, registration is closed. See you next year!
