The popular East Coast Paddlesports and Outdoor Festival is back! The festival with something outdoors-y for every age and interest returns April 11-13 at James Island County Park.

Formerly known as the East Coast Canoe and Kayak Festival, the event features one of the country's premier showcases of canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding.

The East Coast Paddlesports and Outdoor festival will bring together enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels with world-renowned instructors and equipment manufacturers. Attendees can try out equipment, compete in races and other hands-on activities on site, and learn everything from the basics to expert skills in each sport.

After getting their fill of outdoor excitement, festival-goers can stay to enjoy tasty fare from food vendors on site at the park, enjoy a beverage, and listen to live music. On Friday evening, stop by the park for live music from popular Charleston band Sol Driven Train.
