Schmidt Recreation Complex

2944 Humbert Avenue

Cincinnati, Ohio 45226


It’s as easy as U.P.R.P.C.



Pull into our drop off lane and unload your boat with help from our teen volunteers and place it in our secure holding area. Return to your car to park it for the evening. If you’re renting a boat you get to skip this step!


Parking for the Party is free at Schmidt Recreation Complex. Additional parking can be found on surrounding side streets and at Riverview East Academy, just a short walk down the Ohio bike trail. Parking volunteers are on-site to assist.


If you registered online, pick up your packet at the registration tent between the ball fields. You can also register on-site at the registration tent. Registration closes at 8:00 pm.


Relax by the riverside and enjoy live music, local beer, food vendors, and exhibitor booths. Don’t forget to check out the Paddlefest raffle! Party concludes at 9:00 pm.


Camp out on Friday night and wake up ready to paddle! Reservations are required and can be added to your paddling registration online. On-site camping reservations can be made, if space allows. RVs welcome in our camper lot, but no water or electric hookups are offered.
