Slave River Paddlefest 2018 Add Video

World-class big-water paddling, 24-hour daylight, warm water and good friends - what's not to love! The Slave River, near Fort Smith, Northwest Territories, Canada, is an awesome river for all ages and skill levels - from expert paddlers to brand-new beginners, and our festival has clinics and events for everyone. Slave River Paddlefest is held on the August long weekend every year (the very first weekend in August - usually around the 1st). Paddlefest includes instructional clinics, river trips, and fun, friendly competitions. There are events for kayaks, canoes, voyageur canoes, kids and adults. The Slave offers every type of paddling imaginable: from flatwater canoeing around beautiful islands to wild Class V and VI whitewater. Bring your kayak, canoe, SUP, or raft and join us for a paddling experience you’ll never forget! This isn't your average paddling festival. Paddlefest includes lots of activities for spectators – come watch the whitewater events, join our community feast, learn Dene traditional games, try paddling, or go on a guided hike to learn more about the local area. The main events happen on the August long weekend, but most paddlers arrive a week or two early, and there will be river trips and clinics happening in the weeks leading up to Paddlefest – it's a long drive - come on up and stay a while!
