The name has changed and the events have expanded through the decades, but this year the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) celebrates a quarter century of its festival honoring the paddlesports and outdoor recreation community! The popular East Coast Paddlesports and Outdoor Festival returns with something outdoors-y for every age and interest on April 17-19 at James Island County Park.

The East Coast Paddlesports and Outdoor Festival features one of the country’s premier showcases of canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. In 2013, the festival expanded to include a multitude of popular outdoor recreation activities in addition to paddling, such as mountain biking, slack lining, archery, climbing, and disc golf.

The East Coast Paddlesports and Outdoor festival brings together enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels with world-renowned instructors and sports 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.

This year’s festival will be bigger and better! Kick off the weekend with a special springtime edition of the Reggae Nights Concert Series, live in the park on Friday, April 17. The concert is open to the public for $10, or free for festival registrants. On Saturday, join us to compete or just watch amazing climbing action at the annual Palmetto Pump Climbing Competition at the Wall! These are just a few of the many weekend activities taking place at James Island County Park.

Anyone who enjoys being active in the great outdoors will find something exciting at the East Coast Paddlesports and Outdoor Festival, beginning Friday, April 17 through Sunday, April 19 at James Island County Park. Park admission starts at $1 per person. To try out activities, get the Try It pass for $10. Or, register for a full-day or weekend pass to experience classes, demos, competitions and much more.
