Clearwater Kayak Festival
August 4 @ 12:00 AM - August 6 @ 12:00 AM
The fest was started in 2007 by Ben Earle. It’s an event that helps showcase the mighty Clearwater River. Paddlers come from all over BC, Canada, and internationally to enjoy the river and the infamous after-party!
There is the Adrian Kiernan Boatercross in the Lower Canyon (class 3-4) and A free style competition on one of the great play spots on the lower canyon.
Paddlers can enjoy all the sections of the river in beautiful Wells Gray Park. Everything from class 1-5 can be found in and around the area.
Generous sponsorship and donations from local businesses, paddling shops, and raft companies help to make the fest a success.
Join us August 4, 5, 6th 2023!
