Alberta Paddle Fest serves to promote paddling in Alberta. This event broadly represents the involvement and interests of paddling organizations, clubs, industry representatives and river users within the recreational and competitive paddling communities. APF is about fun activities, social networking and promoting the safety and sustainability of our paddling environment.

- Clinics and river runs for beginners to advanced paddlers
- No boat? No problem! Demo boats available from Aquabatics, Undercurrents, MEC, the U of C Outdoor Centre and Canada West Paddle Sports
- All ages and all abilities welcome
- Paddle sport demo clinics, hiking, rafting and trail riding offered by nearby outfitters for non paddlers

Paddlers and those who enjoy the river culture are invited to come out to the Red Deer River to celebrate whitewater paddling in Alberta!
