Dates are set for the 2019 Kettle River Paddling Festival – MAY 3,4,5 2019
Bring your 14 foot raft or your stand up board. Kayaks, canoes, and dories are all welcome to join the fun.
Race, Rodeo, or Relax
You decide. Go hog wild and paddle, paddle, paddle, or find a chill spot next to a waterfall and enjoy those sounds of silence.
Plenty of opportunities to mix it up – run a . lap on the Kettle, hike to Big Spring Falls, sup your way up to Hell’s Gate.
Kettle Fest May 3,4,5, 2019
The first weekend in May is the traditional date for the Kettle Fest. This is the kick-off for the spring Minnesota Whitewater paddling season.
Because of high water the festival organizers have twice moved the date to a later weekend. If this event needs rescheduling the make up date will be on the weekend off May 18-19.
Please check back for updates on river levels.
