SAVE THE DATE! The Fourth Annual Grand Columbus Whitewater Paddle & Block Party is August 11 and 12 in Columbus, Georgia!

This EPIC weekend will kick off with The GRAND Columbus Block Party from 6-10 PM on Broadway. We will be blocking off the streets, serving up SweetWater brews and hosting incredible live music!

On Saturday, we will hit the river for a day of whitewater paddling with our friends at Whitewater Express! Their team of paddle guides will lead groups down the 'hooch every hour of the day!  In the afternoon, join in us on for the Powerhouse Paddle Party at overlooking Waveshaper Island for more music and some brews with our friends from Sweetwater Brewing Company!

The Grand Columbus Whitewater Paddle is one of our twelve Heartland Rivers of Georgia trips featuring camping, paddling and stewardship in south and central Georgia. The series brings to light conservation efforts, economic development and recreational opportunities on the Flint, Ochlockonee, Ocmulgee, Ogeechee, Chattahoochee, Altamaha, Satilla, Savannah and Yellow rivers.

Largely unknown to the Georgia outdoor enthusiast, Georgia’s heartland rivers are a treasure trove of unparalleled natural beauty and recreation opportunity just a short drive from home.
