Become a Sponsor of The Grand

On the largest stretch of urban whitewater in the world, The Grand Columbus Whitewater Paddle brings together adventure seekers from all over the South to downtown Columbus and onto the Chattahoochee River. Since 2014, The Grand has celebrated the vision and leadership shown by Columbus in the removal of two outdated mill dams and restoration of the Chattahoochee to its natural flow. In doing so, they’ve created and incredible whitewater course! Saturday includes a day full of guided rafting led by our friends at Whitewater Express, followed by a late afternoon of music, whitewater watching and Sweetwater Beer at Waveshaper Island. Learn more about The Grand!
