What began as a couple of kayakers creating tunes on the back deck after a long day on the river, has grown into Pickin’ & Paddlin’ 2018, a cult-classic community celebration to raise funds for Bend Paddle Trail Alliance (BPTA) whose mission is to establish a navigable paddle trail within Deschutes County to enhance river and lake recreation opportunities while promoting water safety, education, and stewardship. Come enjoy live music and boat demos on the back lawn at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe. Tickets are $5 (children 12 and under are free) and all proceeds go directly to BPTA. No dogs please.
We pre-sell tickets in order to manage capacity. Pre-sale tickets are available through the Tumalo Creek website only and will soon be available. Bring your receipt and ID to get in. There will be a limited number of tickets available at the door on a first come first serve basis. This popular event will sell out so please purchase tickets early!
Pickin’ Schedule: 3-6pm Kayak, Fishing Kayak, Canoe and Paddleboard Demos, 4:30-9pm Live Music
