Paddle Fest Info

Please find details regarding Paddle Fest programming below; for questions about the event please e-mail

Event check-in: Organizers will be at Mukwah tours beginning at 5 pm. Event check for Paddle Fest will be held Friday 7-9 pm and again Saturday 8-9 am.
Camping: Paddle Fest is being hosted and based at Mukwah Tours in the group campsite area. If you wish to camp with a group, please ensure that one person from that group arrives early enough to stake out an area. We will be providing a huge tarp cover over a group fire pit. Fire wood is available at a cost through Mukwah. Picnic tables are available, but limited. If you have camp chairs, folding camp tables etc, please bring that for your own enjoyment.
Clinics and event logistics (shuttles etc): Once event check in is complete; with your instructor you will be responsible for organizing shuttles and car pooling to your chosen river locations.
Learn to Kayak participants: Your day will begin on flat water near Sundre and if there is interest we may progress to the river in the afternoon for a mix of moving water skills and river safety. Participants are asked to bring the following: polypropylene/thermal underwear (long sleeves and bottoms), wool or neoprene socks and river shoes (can be running shoes as well). While demo boats and some additional equipment will be made available from Aquabatics and Undercurrents we encourage you to rent equipment from local paddling shops and clubs to ensure proper fit and guaranteed equipment. Please contact if you have any questions or concerns.
Additional: Paddle Fest registration includes a Saturday night BBQ dinner and Sunday morning breakfast. Please bring additional food for all your other meals including snacks for on the river. While Paddle Fest is not providing alcohol at this event, feel free to bring your own for personal consumption.
