What is Paddlefest?

Delaware Seashore State Park's Paddlefest began in 2017, planned as a special one-time event, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the state park. That first year was SO. MUCH. FUN. 

Park staff and paddlefest participants knew Paddlefest needed to be an annual event. In 2019, the growing popularity of the event led to the inaugural Paddlefest After-Party, complete with food, beverages, live music, and a variety of exhibitors and vendors. Generous sponsors made this party possible and also provided t-shirts and goody bags for all participants!

What's new in 2022

  • After crazy times in 2020 & 2021, the official Paddlefest After-Party will be BACK IN FULL FORCE this year! Open to all park visitors (not just paddlers), we're going to have live music, food trucks, beer, exhibitors, vendors, and tons of fun!

  • New educational stops along the course (and if the tides allow, the course route could be new!)

  • A digital course map, available on any smart phone
