Make the best use of your time during the show!

  • Join our FB page and sign up for our Enewsletter – An even better way to get the latest news on not only Paddlefest but also about the great things we have going on throughout the year.
  • Attend at least two days – There’s a lot to see and a lot to do at our shows, especially if you are looking to purchase a canoe, kayak or SUP.  You’ll want to plan on plenty of time to test paddle to choose the right boat or board, as well as, to choose the right accessories to go with your purchase.
  • Be Prepared – This is New York and in the Adirondacks we say if you don’t like the weather then wait 10 minutes.  So, check out the latest weather forecast and be prepared for the elements.  Rain or shine, the show will go on.
  • Buying a Boat or SUP – Make sure you take a look at all the companies here.  There are literally hundreds of models to choose from. Pick the ones that best meet your needs and pocket book and get out on the water and try them. That’s the best way to get the right one for you, and what makes our show different from all the rest.
  • Accessorize Your Purchase – Now’s a great time to get all the extras you need to go along with your new canoe, kayak or SUP, or add to the items for the ones you already own.  We’ve got great prices on everything, and company reps to help you pick out what’s best.
  • Taking Your Boat Home – Be it a car top, roof rack or trailer, we’ll have whatever you need to take your new purchase home with you.  Rack installations are always available, so you are able to travel worry free wherever your adventures take you.
  • Don’t Forget the Other Half of Our Show – Yes, it’s an outdoor show! So, even if paddling is not your thing, we have all the clothing, footwear and gear you need to hike, climb or bike in the outdoors.  Be sure to check out our Outdoor Stores at both events too.
  • Talk to the Reps and ask a lot of questions – That’s why they're here. They are the experts for the companies they represent.  Pick their brains and ask them the questions you need to know.  We’re all a team here so take advantage of the knowledge and advice they have.
  • Trade in Your Boat – We do take in trades during the shows.  Just go to the checkout area when you arrive and let us know that you have something you’d like to trade in.
