Here's a few tips from our staff on how to make the most of your time at Paddlfest!

  • Check our website, often for the latest additions, updates and news for both Saratoga Paddlefest and Adirondack Paddlefest.
  • Plan ahead and stay in touch! Read through this guide, check out the website, even better yet, checkout the Paddlefest Event pages at our Facebook page.
  • Attend at least two days! There’s a lot to see and do! And if you’re going to test paddle, there’s a lot of boats to try out. Try to come for at least two days to give yourself time to try out as many as you like. You won’t feel rushed at the end of the day when it’s time to make a purchase decision.
  • Be prepared! The Boy Scouts were right, it’s best to be ready. Update New York is known for its fickle weather, so bring some rain gear. Are you going to test paddle? Bring the right clothing for paddling and some dry clothes to change into once you’re finished.
  • Planning on buying a boat? Great! But don’t forget the accessories (paddles, life jackets, etc.) and roof racks for your vehicle. If you know you’re going to be buying a boat and will need a rack system, make sure you plan some time to talk to the rack vendors. There’s lots of options to consider. And you’ll need to plan time for us to install the rack for you. And all accessories are 15% off all weekend!
