Join the Columbia Slough Watershed Council for Regatta, an on-the-water paddle festival like no other, on Sunday, August 11th from 10am to 2pm. Regatta celebrates recreation opportunities on Portland’s hidden gem of local waterways, the Columbia Slough. Regatta is not actually a race; this family friendly event is a fun paddle for experienced paddlers and novice paddlers alike.
The event features complimentary 45-minute canoe and kayak rentals (all equipment provided) for registered attendees. Before and after paddling, participants can visit with local environmental and water-based organizations, enjoy hands-on nature activities, live music and guided tours. Free t-shirts and refreshments will be provided while supplies last.
Advanced registration is required below, or by calling (503) 281-1132. Participants with their own human-powered watercraft and safety equipment are also welcome to register and join the fun. Crews will be available to help unload and transport boats. $10-$60/person or $30-125/family sliding-scale suggested donation. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds!
