About this event

Join Anchored Soul, the City of Belmont & Gaston County Travel & Tourism for our 3rd annual “Bon Temps Fest on Wylie” in Belmont, NC! Whether you’re a live music lover, a vendor event shopper, a beer and wine sipper, a foodie, a seasoned paddler, or a fun-lovin’ paddle newbie, we have something for you. The Friday night event includes live music, beverage & food vendors, yoga and so much more. The Saturday event includes the same, with the addition of a Paddle Battle on Lake Wylie to energize the crowd. Saturday’s proceeds benefit various local non-profit organizations including, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Gaston, Jaycees of Gaston County, Catawba Riverkeeper & a few local animal rescues. Beginner paddlers can participate in a 1-mile fun race and the intermediate and advanced paddler can take it up a notch in the 3.5-, 7-, or 14-mile distance courses. There’s also a Guppies race and a SUP Pup Cup race for your human babies and fur babies, respectively.

No Equipment, No Problem! Anchored Soul will be available to assist with all your equipment needs. Never paddleboarded before and would like to try it out, contact Heidi Schmidt Cole, American Canoe Association certified SUP Instructor and owner of Anchored Soul, to schedule a lesson.
