Vancouver Kayak Club Paddle Festival THIS WEEKEND!!!

Once again it will be held in the beautiful Chilliwack Valley that offers several excellent class II – IV river runs with boulder gardens, pool drops, and surfing waves for paddlers of all interest and skill levels. The Festival is a great way to kick-off another year of paddling with a laid-back, social, and fun weekend of events.

The festival brings together paddlers, from novice to advanced, for a weekend of fun on and and off the river. It's a great way to meet new and old paddling buddies, demo the latest in gear and boats from our sponsors, and enjoy the shuttle service to several
spots on the Chilliwack River.

Always a spectator favorite, the festival offers paddlers a chance to compete in a downriver race and other popular on-river contests.

Off the river, the festival has lots going on including a silent auction and raffle where sponsors have donated some amazing prizes, such as boats, spray decks, paddles, helmets, PFD’s, and other kayaking-related products and services. Live music by the band "Switch", draw prizes, and race awards make for a busy Saturday night.

Festival registration includes 2 nights of camping, one dinner, and two breakfasts; as well as a free T-Shirt (while supplies last).

We will be there with Jackson Kayak demo boats and demo Kokatat drysuits.

See you there!
