Join the Northwest Paddling Community on the Shores of West Seattle for the First Annual Northwest Paddling Festival. This is the big development to help get the paddling community together for a celebration of the power of the paddle.
There will have a demo beach, presentation/classroom tents, vending booths, instruction beach, demonstration area, food, fun, and music. Come out if you are an experienced padder or a novice who is interested in learning more about the sport. Rain or shine, sign up here as registration is limited! We are also looking for volunteers, if you would like to give a hand in putting together this event.
