Suwannee River Paddling Festival
North Florida’s fifth annual Suwannee River Paddling Festival will take place at Suwannee River State Park near Live Oak. Supported trip options on Saturday and Sunday offer paddlers the opportunity to experience the scenic Suwannee and Withlacoochee Rivers in segments ranging from 12 to 20 miles. Paddle Florida’s favorite entertainers will perform Saturday for a benefit concert to support regional waterway and springs protection. The weekend will also feature kayak/canoe demos, an evening ghost tour through nearby ruins, a silent auction, and an opportunity to hear from local experts dedicated to preserving North Florida’s rivers, springs, and watersheds.
