As the current COVID-19 crisis continues to grow here in New York and in our country, we are taking every precaution and canceling both our Saratoga Paddlefest and Adirondack Paddlefest. We will hopefully be holding a number of smaller demos later this year if things get better in time. In the meantime our Pre-Season sale continues and we can arrange for curbside store pick up, ship your boat to you, or store it here for whenever you wish to pick it up. Thank you for your continued support and please be safe.

Test paddle canoes, kayak and paddleboards all weekend!
New York Paddlefest, America's Largest
On-water Paddlesports Sale
What is Paddlefest? What started on a small lakeside beach in the tiny hamlet of Inlet, NY, has grown to become the largest on-water canoe, kayak and SUP sale in the country. Our locations in Saratoga Springs and Old Forge offer the largest selection anywhere, with over 1,000 models from more than a dozen leading manufacturers. During the weekend, paddling experts will be presenting free demonstrations and clinics to help you improve your paddling techniques and put you in the best equipment for your needs. In addition to boats, there will be a full lineup of paddling gear and accessories on sale, including paddles, life jackets, rack systems, trailers and more. We’ll help you make the best choices to fit your budget and paddling style. You’ll be able to find everything you need to get out, have fun and be safe on the water.
Test Paddle Before You Buy - We’ll have hundreds of canoes, kayaks and SUPs out on the water for you to try all weekend long. We suggest looking at all the vendor booths before heading to the water to find out which boats and boards fit your needs and your budget, so you can get the most out of your test paddling sessions. Company experts will be available to help you make the best choice in what to try and give you a hand while out on the water.
Outdoor Gear, Clothing and More - 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! Whether its hiking, camping, backpacking or just hanging around in the outdoors, we have everything you need to go outside and play. We’ll have backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, hiking boots, sandals, books, maps and outdoor clothing that gets you where you want to go and to be comfortable and safe no matter what conditions you find.
