The Kettle Fest has a full weekend of paddling activities for whitewater and flat water paddlers. Challenge yourself on white-water rapids or enjoy some easy paddling on the Kettle River's upper or lower sections.
The river is designated as "Wild and Scenic" and is a beautiful float from the head waters down to the St. Croix.
Because of unsafe water levels the Kettle Festival dates have been changes to May 23-25
"Great event, a laid back and action packed weekend."
