    Default Open Canoe Festival - 10th Anniversary - May 2020 - River Drôme




    So it's official We have a date

    Opens ~ 6pm pm on Thursday 30th April
    Ends ~ 4pm on Sunday 3rd May


    The show will go on Thanks Paul Villecourt

    In gathering, those who have attended the Open Canoe Festival have revealed a strong, vibrant and truly international canoe-culture of independent tripping and journeying – one stretching from Denmark to Italy and from Spain to Austria, across the heart of where modern recreational canoeing began with the likes of John MacGregor journeying “A Thousand Miles in the Rob Roy Canoe on Rivers and Lakes of Europe” - back in 1866!

    Only when the last tree has died
    and the last river been poisoned
    and the last fish been caught
    will we realise we cannot eat money.
