Ready your paddles for the 11th year of Paddlefest in Augusta, GA. Canoes, kayaks and SUPs, come out and leisurely paddle or compete in one of our race categories, an exciting trek down the Savannah River. Celebrate the start of summer and the peak of paddle season!

Paddlefest offers something for paddlers of all levels! Beginners can feel confident knowing our experienced safety team will guide you through the shoals, advanced paddlers up for a challenge can sign up to race, or anyone can take it easy in the recreation division. Stand-up paddleboards are recreation-only on a special flat water course.

Make your way through 7 miles of beautiful shoals and free-flowing river between historic downtown Augusta and North Augusta.

Then, cool off with an afterparty on the riverfront with lunch (included), live music and craft beers.

During registration you can pay $5 to participate in a poker run. The first poker card will be handed out at the check-in at the start, then 3 locations on the river (map will be provided) with the last card at the check-in at the end at 105 Riverfront Drive. Best hand wins a great local prize package!

All your fees directly support Savannah Riverkeeper's mission of improving the Savannah River through restoration, protection, and education. Registration is open now!
