Paddlefest will feature activities showcasing Humboldt Bay, and will be based at HSU’s Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center. The Aquatic Center will serve as the official headquarters for Paddlefest, including hosting land-based activities/classes, while water-based activities will be scheduled to launch from the new floating dock facility. The day will play host to music, clinics and classes, vendor demos and booths, and delicious food and beverages, and the wacky Kardboard Kayak Race, and a myriad of other water-based activities.
Admission is FREE. In past years, over 1000 people attended including Humboldt State University alumni, students, local and regional water enthusiasts and novices and community spectators. The result will be bigger crowds and more potential participants!.
Participating in Paddlefest is a great way to support outdoor adventure on the North Coast, Humboldt State University and promote recreational use of the bay. Profits from the event will be donated to the HSU Center Activities Youth Aquatic Scholarship Fund.
