2017 Paddle OregonAugust 20 - 24
2017 Paddle Oregon
The annual Paddle Oregon fundraiser and river madness are upon us, and given the amount of memories made by mile, this one can't come soon enough. Go all-in with five, sun-ripened days dreaming our way down the magnificent upper Willamette alongside friends and family. It's here you'll experience the river in a markedly different way, with spectacular meals, entertainment, unrestrained giggling, the legendary wine/beer selection and more memories than five mere days really deserve to make. It's not only become a tradition of sorts, but a real Northwest rite-of-passage. (This year's registration is closed, but please visit Paddle Oregon's website to be placed on a wait list, link below.)
