The Kenai River Paddling Film Festival is back to kickoff the summer paddling season! This year’s festival will feature 12 of the year’s best paddling films, including locally made films and 9 award winners from the Paddling Film Festival World Tour.

Since 2006, the Paddling Film Festival World Tour has been showcasing the very best paddling films. The World Tour screens in more than 120 cities around the globe and has grown to become one of the largest paddling events in the world. This year we will bring the World Tour to the Kenai Peninsula!

Admission is just $10 in advance ($15 night of the festival), and includes a FREE digital subscription to Paddling Magazine. Food will be available from Yo Tacos.

Preceding the films at will be an Outdoor Gear Swap hosted by the Kenai Watershed Forum. This is a great opportunity to offload your extra boats, paddles, bikes, skis, tents and get some great deals on new for you gear! All proceeds from the film festival and gear swap will go towards river conservation and supporting paddling here on the Kenai Peninsula.
