Join a group of like-minded female paddlers for a three-day paddle festival, hosted by inspirational paddler Anna Levesque! This festival is all about fostering community by connecting, sharing, paddling, and supporting each other on the river. Trips will be offered on different rivers representing a range of skill levels, and are 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.

The registration fee includes an event t-shirt, dinner, and raffle tickets. Raffle items will be announced in 2021. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased on site.

2021 dates and registration are coming soon!
