Paddle Festival

May 18, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

UPDATE: Due to high water on the Mississippi River, Paddlefest has been cancelled for 2019. We’ll be back in 2020 bigger and better than ever!

Come out and experience Riverlands PADDLE FESTIVAL this year on Saturday May 18th!  This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY event.  We will have several boats available for you to choose from.  Some of those include:

  • SUP

PADDLE FESTIVAL is held at Riverlands in West Alton MO, just across the river from Alton IL.  Near the Audubon.  Paddling will be available from 11:00am to 4:00pm.  Participants will paddle in an off channel section of the Mississippi River called Ellis Bay.  So no big currents to be concerned about.  Registration is required upon your arrival and the cost is $5 per person to cover our ACA insurance.  Food and water will be available.  We are also working on some additional entertainment for those waiting to take their turn.  Mississippi River Water Trail and the US Corps of Engineers will provide safety boaters on the water.

So come out and spend part of your Saturday with us.  Get into a big 14 person Voyage Canoe and enjoy your river.  Questions?  Contact us at 636-899-2600.

We are looking for volunteers!  Anyone wishing to give us a hand, please reply to this email.  We are ALL volunteers with the MRWT, with the wish of getting more people like you on our waters.  Thank you.
