Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start of summer. It’s also the weekend of Paddlefest!

What’s Paddlefest?

It takes place Memorial Day weekend in Buena Vista, CO and it’s fun for the whole family. Whether you’re looking to get into paddling (kayaking or paddleboarding) or are interested in getting some new gear, this is the place. There’s a gear sale where you can pick up some lightly used gear at terrific prices and speak with industry professionals.

On the river there are downriver paddle contests for you to compete, or spectate, along with contests featuring some of the best paddlers in the world. You can expect to see these paddlers throwing front flips, spins, and even more tricks as they move downriver.

Away from the river, in town, is where the whole family can sample some great food and the adults can sample some libations. Take a look at the video above to learn more about Paddlefest and should you decide to come, be sure to swing by our booth to say “Hello!”
