Built around this long-standing event, is a festival that has something for everyone!
If you love paddling, consider Timmins for your canoe trips in Ontario. You will find comprehensive kayaking and canoeing guides for all the leisure events and competitions. This festival draws paddlers and visitors from communities like Temiskaming Shores (New Liskeard, Haileybury, Cobalt), Sudbury, Cochrane, Kapuskasing, Temagami, Toronto, Ottawa, Kitchener-Waterloo, and London, Ontario, to name just a few.
