6th. Annual Cape Breton Paddlefest Comes to St. Peter's and Area

Paddlers from around the Province will be coming to the area to attend the 3 day fun filled signature paddling event in Richmond County. The Cape Breton Paddlefest offers a series of instruction, fun and social activities for the experienced paddler and those that maybe interested in becoming a paddler. The event showcases the paddling opportunities along the coast of the Acadian region on Isle Madame and the relative shelter of the Bras d’Or Lake. Numerous paddling routes are available within thirty kilometres of  St Peter’s, Arichat, Potlotek,  and proximate to Highway 4. Our event offers fun and accessible paddling opportunities for participants ranging from 14 to 72 years of age.
