The 9th annual Shelburne Kayak Festival is August 14-16, 2020 and features a series of instruction, fun and social activities for new and experienced kayakers. The event showcases the town of Shelburne and the surrounding community of Shelburne County and welcomes you to paddle in the harbour of what was once the largest city in Canada. Most clinics launch from The Islands Provincial Park. There are excellent kayaking opportunities around the park and the inner parts of Shelburne Harbour. Events this year include kayak rolling coaching and traditional Greenland paddling with James Manke, our popular introduction to kayak surfing, our introduction to tidal currents clinic, and our Paddle Canada Basic & Level-1 Sea Kayak training!
