Paddlefest is the kickoff to paddle season every year in the sweet, little, one stoplight town of Buena Vista, Colorado. This signature event has put Buena Vista on the map both locally and across the nation. This year, Paddlefest is partnering with Search & Rescue as a fundraiser to offset the increasing costs due to the increase in tourism.
This is a family fun event, which doesn’t solely focus on the river but includes other events also. For those who aren’t here to compete in the whitewater events, which include clinics, competitions and races, there are free demos at Town Lake and other competitions.
Paddlefest will start on the 27th of May and conclude on the 30th. Check out this website for a complete list of events:
