Our signature event is the Paddle Antrim Festival the second weekend after Labor Day every year. This includes a two-day kayak paddle covering over 40 miles of Northern Michigan’s Chain of Lakes. This non-competitive event focuses on celebrating and bringing awareness to the waterways of Northern Michigan. Paddlers can choose from a selection of route lengths and paddle anywhere from 7 to all 42 miles. The festival will conclude with a great celebration in Elk Rapids. See the Events Calendar for complete event information.
