It's time for the 2019 National Paddling Film Festival! Every year in February, a motley crew of dirtbag kayakers, open boaters, single bladers, SUPers, and rafters gather to watch paddling flicks, drink beer, eat food, bid on silent auction items, and catch up with old pals--this all takes place at a bourbon distillery in the heart of central Kentucky.

We throw this big party to highlight the best in paddlesport films and still images and to raise money for organizations dedicated to river conservation and access.

Grab your tickets online early and save some cabbage. Online tickets are $25. Tickets at the door are $30. Ticket includes admission for Friday night and Saturday night, as well as beer and a raffle ticket. Last day for early registration is February 8th, 2019.
