Annual Sierra Nevada Kayak and Canoe Festival, sponsored by SNAC (Sierra Nevada Adventure Company)
This event is superb for discovering the sport of paddling, plus sampling kayaks and canoes. Why buy a kayak without getting advice first? Try out various styles of boats at the festival. Manufacture reps, raffle prizes, clinics, demonstrations, new gear, old faves, fun times and lakes. Extremely informative festival.
