MEC PADDLEFEST 2016

MEC PADDLEFEST VICTORIA 2017

Dive into the world of kayaking, canoeing, and stand up paddleboarding. We've got lots on deck at our annual MEC Paddlefest, and everyone's welcome. Go for a test paddle, learn skills at a clinic, browse exhibitor's booths, and hunt for deals at our annual gear swap and boat auction. 

Bring your friends and family, and celebrate the fun of floating with good times outside!
