May Long Weekend PALMERFEST Palmer Rapids
May 17 - May 20
Spend Victoria Long Weekend camping at Palmer Rapids this year for PALMERFEST! A great place for beginner and novice paddlers. Palmer Rapids has a little bit of everything for everyone. KWP members usually make this the home-base during the weekend with day trips to other surrounding rivers like Lower Madawaska, Ottawa River or MKC section. Others stay and enjoy the easy paddling at Palmer great for kids and those that don’t paddle. Always a good KWP Members turnout.
The main festival takes place at the Paddler-Coop. There is live music, food, campfires, and of course paddling the rapids there. Enjoy the May long weekend on the MAD! This section of the river is good for beginners, and also has a nice beach. Watch this event page for camping details.
Ability: Beginner, Novice, Intermediate and Advanced

Madawaska Trip: We may take a group to the lower/middle/upper Mad depending on interest this weekend from the festival.
UPDATE: Chris will lead a trip on Sunday May 19th down Lower Madawaska River, meet at Jessups Beach on the grass at 10:00 am. KWP is planning on having trip leaders available to support new paddlers at Palmer Rapids on the Saturday.
There is also the option to join the Paddler Co-op with their annual courses and camping, great for those wanting to improve their skills. Contact them directly for details click on the following link:
