Mark your calendar for July 1-3, 2011 and come on out to Saskatchewan for the Churchill River Whitewater Festival. This fabulous event is an annual tradition in Saskatchewan and whether you paddle canoe, kayak, beginner or expert there is something for everyone.
Warm, big whitewater is the main draw of the Churchill River but the real fun happens Canada Day weekend! This year the whitewater festival will include freestyle, slalom, river running, and of course fabulous off-water festivities.
As always, the Churchill River Canoe Outfitters in Missinipi, SK will host the festival which will be based at Barker Island on the Churchill River. Events are taking place at Surf City and Mosquito Rapids but if adventure is what you are looking for the rest of the Churchill is your playground. Whitewater isn’t all we have though as the Churchill is home to some of the most beautiful, family-friendly paddling in all of Canada so if you want to tour around in a canoe or touring kayak just bring your fishing pole and enjoy the sun and scenery.
