This August 26-28, 2016, join the 8th annual Great Canadian Kayak Challenge and Festival in downtown Timmins, Ontario.

Some paddlers go for the bragging rights of having competed, others for the amazing prize give-aways. Popular musicians, spectacular fireworks and a variety of vendors offer entertainment for paddlers and non-paddlers alike throughout the weekend.

This is a paddling festival unlike any other—instead of being tucked away on a lonely river, the Great Canadian Kayak Challenge and Festival is centrally located in downtown Timmins, within walking distance to all the hotels and restaurants, as well as city hall.
