We're headed to Deefest on April 15-16th 2023!
Updated: Apr 7
What's Deefest? DeeFest is an inclusive kayaking event that celebrates everything the River
Dee has to offer to a wide range of people. It’s a weekend of fun events,
races, socialising, shenanigans, silliness and, of course - THE PARTY!
What are we putting on for it?
1. Ducky Cross! Saturday 14th April: 12.30-4.30pm, Serpent's Tail
Definitely the spectator highlight for Saturday. Paddlers race six at a time
down Serpent's Tail, in a knock-out round style event, but this time we are in
Duckies (inflatable sit-on kayaks)! Expect lots of thrills, spills and silliness; and
plenty of surprises along the way. This is a competition open to all Deefest entrants and we can't wait to see who will be crowned the Ducky Champions!
2. Llangollen Wild Whitewater Kayak Tour: Sunday 16th April 11am - 1.30pm, Horseshoe Falls to East Street Long-stay Car Park.

It includes . This is a trip that will run as a separate event from the festival, and tickets can be purchased via the button below.
