Paddle enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels, we’ve got something for you. Test out demo equipment provided by The Trail Head. Experts will be on hand to offer instruction and guidance while you demo their equipment. Learn about the different paddle sports and check out a variety of new crafts.

Talk to river experts and pick up the skills you need to master Montana’s rivers or simply get out on the flat water for the first time. There will be instructors on the water for a variety of support, including youth and beginners training. Check out the Kids Booth, visit with AIS experts, learn about boat safety, enjoy food from the Covered Wagon and more! We will have live music from some of the members of Shakewell playing from 1pm onwards. All booths will have fun activities for adults and children.
