Paddle On

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and uncertainty with when events with large groups of people will be allowed we have cancelled our June showing of the Paddling Film Festival at the Algonquin Theatre.  If you have purchased a ticket already the Algonquin Theatre will be contacting you with a refund.  We will list here and contact everyone if we are able to reschedule this event in some way for 2020.

Since 2006, the Paddling Film Festival World Tour has been showcasing the very best paddling films. The World Tour screens in more than 120 cities around the world. Join us for this year’s best paddling films. You’ll be inspired to explore rivers, lakes and oceans, push extremes, embrace the paddling lifestyle and appreciate the wild places.
