The Lake Tahoe Paddle Festival is a solstice celebration of human powered watercraft featuring “Ancient Art to State of the Art™” boats, boards and paddles. Their focus is the preservation of indigenous watercraft art and culture. Meeks Bay Resort will be hosting the world’s most beautiful paddle race through amazing C’alitaash (Emerald Bay) on Saturday June 18th at 8am. Interpretive exhibits will highlight sustainable recreation, healthy foods, yoga, healing arts and environmental awareness.
Join the Festival for a weekend of workshops, clinics, fun, food and family entertainment. Try out the world’s fastest growing sport—standup paddling—on a demo, or paddle your canoe or kayak over to learn more about protecting Lake Tahoe’s clarity and efforts to prevent the proliferation of invasive species. Bring the grandparents and kids to learn about building ancient tule reed boats, dugout canoes or “old school” wood boards. There will be something for everyone in the family.
If you’ve never been out on the water, or you’re a SUP professional, the Lake Tahoe Paddle Festival is where you’ll want to be to celebrate the summer of 2011.
