What started on a small lakeside beach in 1999, Adirondack Paddlefest has grown to be the largest on-water canoe, kayak and SUP demo and sale in the country.  Our location in Old Forge offers a large beach for test paddling, close accommodations and restaurants, ample parking and the largest selection of canoes, kayaks, and SUPs on sale anywhere in the northeast. It also features continuous on-water paddling, clinics, demos, lectures, classes, food and fun for the whole family. Factory reps and industry experts will be on hand all weekend to help get you on the water with the right canoe, kayak, SUP and equipment for all your paddling adventures.

More than 1,000 Canoes, Kayaks and SUPs on Sale

Every canoe, kayak and paddleboard will be on sale. Hundreds of models from the leading brands will be displayed. There will be tandem, solo and pack canoes. Whatever style kayak you want will be here: recreational, touring and light-touring, tandem, sit-on-top, whitewater, kids and more. And we’ll have SUPs for every level of paddler, from novice to experienced racers!

Test Paddle Before You Buy

At Paddlefest you will see literally hundreds of Canoes, Kayaks, Stand-Up-Paddleboards, and Whitewater boats, instead of a few dozen display models. Talk about comparison shopping! You can test paddle as many different canoes and kayaks as you like, in real world conditions!

More than just canoes, kayaks and SUPs, it’s an Outdoor Expo!

If your outdoor interests go beyond paddling, then you will love this show! We will be featuring Osprey Packs, Giant Bikes, Big Agnes,  Patagonia, Mountain Khakis, and more. And make sure you stop by to see the Sylvan GO Sport Trailer; it's incredible!
