The Ohio River Paddlefest is America's largest paddling trip with 1,700-2,000 people paddling 8.9 miles down the Ohio River through the heat of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. The Ohio River will be closed to power boat and barge traffic as paddlers explore the Ohio, the Licking River and the Mill Creek on their way to the Finish Line Festival featuring live music, food trucks, craft beer, exhibitors and the award ceremony for participants in our Midwest CUP 4 the CUP race. Funds raised support Outdoor Adventure Clubs of Greater Cincinnati (, a volunteer driven non-profit working in 20 inner city high schools to get urban teens out into nature year round.
