Celebrate all things paddling at one of the world’s largest outdoor paddling events.
Mountain Equipment Co-op Toronto will host the eighth annual Toronto Paddlefest at Sunnyside Beach on Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10, starting at 9:30 a.m. and running until 5:30 p.m. each day. With a focus on fun and water safety, the family-oriented event is open to anyone, from novice to expert who wants to take up canoeing or kayaking or to further their paddling skills.
Workshops will be held throughout the day on such topics as canoeing with kids, tandem whitewater canoeing, using paddling to stay in fit, as well as stand up paddleboarding. These on-water workshops will be complemented by on-land yoga and camp cooking.
The event has grown to be one of the world’s largest paddling events with approximately 1000 participants, and hundreds of canoes, kayaks and other boats on the beach.
Paddlefest is a series of urban paddling events developed by MEC to support the enjoyment, growth and safe practice of paddle sports across Canada.
