Join us on June 17 for a kayak paddle on the Mississippi followed by a beer, wine, and whiskey tasting. We'll shuttle you to the launch site at the Kimball Access, and the paddle ends at the Aitkin County Campgrounds Access. The course is ≈7 river miles and will take about 2.5 hours to complete.

The tasting at the landing site will include samples from Jake Pine Brewery, Canción Tequila, Block North Brew Pub, and Paustis Wine Co. Water and snacks provided.

Tickets are $25 through June 1st. Then, the price will increase to $35. Your ticket includes shuttle service, launch assistance, the tasting event, and a branded floating dry-bag. The shuttles will have trailers to haul your kayak. While attendees under 21 are welcome to paddle, all tickets are the same price regardless of age.

Lifejacket or PFD required.

A limited number of kayak rentals are available courtesy of Unbound Adventures. Rental paid thanks to the Aitkin County Recration grant funds

To reduce waiting times this year, we are asking guests to sign up for designated launch times. Please select the appropriate ticket and arrive on time. Each launch is limited to 15 people - if your party would like to launch at the same time we recommend purchasing your tickets promptly before the slots fill.

ID's will be checked before we shuttle you to the launch site. A wristband will be provided so you can enter the tasting area after the paddle.

A note on ticket fees: We apologize for the inconvience of Eventbrite's service charges. Unfortunately, that is the nature of any online sale, which is the most efficient way to sell tickets and keep things organized. All tickets must be purchased through Eventbrite for this reason. Thank you for your understanding and for supporting a nonprofit organization.
