Mountain Equipment Co-op in Toronto is hosting Paddlefest on June 8th and 9th at Sunnyside Park (Map). Take part in on-the-water Canoe, Kayak and SUP clinics for $10 each or attend a workshop on the shore for free. There will be a gear swap and many booths from paddling vendors.

Paddlefest is for all ages and skill levels, so if you are curious about heading out on the water, this is a great place to get started. Registration opens today at Noon, and you can download the schedule to see which clinics you would like to try.
