There’s lots to be discovered at Paddlefest. The earlier you launch, the more time you have to explore the sights and sounds of the river.
Rhythm on the River
Enjoy a serenade on the water by our Rhythm on the River bands, playing from stationary houseboats along the paddling course.
Use the Digital Guide to the Ohio Riverside to locate each band and track your progress through the paddle.
Paddle Wheel pit stop
Take a break, take a leak. The Paddle Wheel Pit Stop is located directly below the National Steamboat Monument paddle wheel on the Cincinnati riverside.
Port-o-lets and water will be waiting as you stretch your legs at the halfway of the paddling course.
Mill Creek Mile
A paddler favorite, the Mill Creek Mile will take you for a float on the “comeback kid” of Greater Cincinnati waterways.
Members of the Mill Creek Yacht Club will delight you with fascinating history of this creek, its bridges, its fauna, and its resurgence.
