“Get Out There” Goodie Bag

We’re going PAPER FREE!   This year, we’re making an effort to reduce waste at Paddlefest by eliminating paper from our goodie-bag and introducing a self-service literature table.  We welcome your brochures, flyers, and coupons on our literature table for paddlers to peruse and pick up at their leisure.  If you’d like to include a fun goodie in our bag (chapstick, whistle, etc.) we’ll gladly include them – check categories above for pricing.
