Date: September 11- 13, 2020
Time: Canceled for 2020
Age: All Ages
UPDATE: We are very sad to announce that Women’s Paddlefest for 2020 has been canceled. We did not make this decision lightly but feel it’s best in light of the current situation to postpone until 2021. We will be moving it back to the first weekend in June - June 4-5, 2021.
If you would like to donate your registration fee, you will receive an extra raffle ticket for the event in 2021- all donations will go to the Shannon Christy Memorial Fund.
Women's Paddlefest at NOC!!
The Ladies Southeast Paddling Series has moved to Nantahala Outdoor Center for a three-day paddle festival, hosted by inspirational paddler Anna Levesque! This festival is all about creating a community by connecting, sharing, paddling, and supporting each other on the river. Trips will be offered on the Tuckaseegee River (Class I-II), the Nantahala River (Class II-III), and the Ocoee River (Class II-IV) representing a range of skill levels, and is open to all women in all watercraft!
Donations and registration fees benefit the Shannon Christy Memorial Fund, an organization that supports non-profits focused on women’s empowerment.
Registration: Registration is $45 and includes an event t-shirt, dinner, and one raffle ticket. Our sponsors have donated a Dagger Kayak of choice, a Werner Paddle, and NRS gear among other awesome prizes for a raffle on Saturday! Additional raffle tickets can be purchased on site.
