Canoe Meadows, Kananaskis


Events Description

Kanfest is a gathering of whitewater kayaking enthusiasts for a weekend of total FUN. Enjoy the events, clinics and friendly competition.

Then it’s time to party! Live Music, BBQ, demos, auctions… and More!Who Can Come?Anyone and everyone!

This is a family friendly event, and the idea behind it is to attract as many kayakers as possible from novice to advanced. Even if you’re brand new to kayaking, you can come out and participate in a beginning course.

The weekend is structured such that you get a chance to paddle with your “heroes”, “friends”, “better halves” and meet many new paddlers.

Lots of fun planned for this year:
– Events such as the ball race, Down River Race, Boater Cross, the ever-popular
Freestyle Rodeo, and legendary Survivor Kananaskis! There will be categories for
(combinations of) juniors, beginners, intermediates, and advanced paddlers; men & ladies; K1, C1, OC, and SUP as necessary.
– Kayak clinics for dry-behind-the-ears beginners right on up to advanced
– Stand-up paddleboarding clinics for green beginners (on the lake) and some aimed
at whitewater kayakers transitioning to a board in the river
– Lots of demo boats available to try out from the local paddling shops
– Lots of great prizes to win
– An auction where you can pick up a great deal on some gear (proceeds go toward
putting on the festival/improving the river)
