Join us for the 11th Annual Ohio River Way Paddlefest at Coney Island. 

The Ohio River Way Paddlefest is the largest canoe and kayak paddling event in the United States. In 2011, Cincinnati was named the Paddling Capital of the U.S. Paddlefest is a weekend event comprised of three separate events over a three-day weekend. 

The first day, Thursday, June 21 is the Kids Outdoor Adventure Expo where kids from Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana take part in the largest outdoor education event in the midwest. Kids learn everything from how to bait a hook and catch a fish, how paddle in a raft to taking a tour on a working tow boat just to name a few. 

On Friday, the Ohio River Music & Outdoor Festival kicks off with five bands, a silent auction, adaptive paddling clinics for veterans, Smart Start Clincs, Dragon boat races, Cardboard boat races, tree and rock wall climbing, exhibitors, early registration, all day boat demos and lots more. 

On Saturday, June 23, join 2,200 paddlers and "Paddle the Ohio" from Coney Island to downtown Cincinnati. 

After paddling relax and enjoy some of Cincinnati's local delights at the Finish Line Festival. Stay and listen to live music by Cajun band, Lagniappe, visit exhibitors and enjoy the scenery on the river. It is a great experience the whole family that is sure to create some great memories.
