Join us on June 23 & 24/2012, for a weekend of workshops, clinics, fun, food and family entertainment. Try out the world’s fastest growing sport—stand up paddling—on a demo, or paddle your canoe or kayak over to learn more about protecting Lake Tahoe’s clarity and efforts to prevent the proliferation of invasive species. Bring the grandparents and kids to learn about building ancient tule reed boats, dugout canoes or “old school” wood boards. There will be something for everyone in the family. If you’ve never been out on the water, or you’re a SUP professional, the Lake Tahoe Paddle Festival is where you’ll want to be to celebrate the summer of 2012.
The Lake Tahoe Paddle Festival is a solstice celebration of human powered watercraft featuring “Ancient Art to State of the Art™” boats, boards and paddles. Their focus is the preservation of indigenous watercraft art and culture. Interpretive exhibits will highlight sustainable recreation, healthy foods, yoga, healing arts and environmental awareness.
This year’s event will highlight the World Tribe Canoe Project ceremony and starting construction. This 70’ trimaran will be carved by Craftmaster’s from around the World and when completed will sail on tour the Earth educating peoples of the threat to our most precious resource…WATER.
