There is something for everyone at the 12th Annual Great Canadian Kayak Challenge & Festival. This non-gated event is a showcase of kayak & canoe challenges, seminars & workshops, arts & culture exhibitors & vendors, live performing arts which include free admission to live concerts both Friday & Saturday night, an interactive Indigenous village, fireworks, and children’s activities.

If you love paddling, consider Timmins for your canoe trips in Ontario. You will find comprehensive kayaking and canoeing guides for all the leisure events and competitions. This festival draws paddlers and visitors from communities like Temiskaming Shores (New Liskeard, Haileybury, Cobalt), Sudbury, Cochrane, Kapuskasing, Temagami, Toronto, Ottawa, Kitchener-Waterloo, and London, Ontario, to name just a few. We have had international paddlers vie against regional paddlers adding to the excitement of the event.
