Enjoy the full Paddlefest route through downtown with optional tour of the Mill Creek and take out at Gilday Riverside Park.
PADDLEFEST MINI / 4.5 MI PADDLE
Half the distance but just as fun, our 4.5 mi paddle concludes at the Public Landing and is limited to 300 paddlers. Sponsored by Cincinnati MINI.
