You are invited to The Paddle Station’s 2nd Annual Calgary Pride Raft Weekend on the Bow River ! The weekend event will run starting this Friday, August 24 until August 26, 2018. Enjoy a spectacular day (or two, or three!) of rafting and/or kayaking from Shouldice Athletic Park to St. Patrick’s Island Park across from East Village downtown.

We are so excited to be celebrating Calgary Pride with all our fellow Calgarians! Make sure to wear bright colors and bring anything else that helps get you in the spirit, such as flags or accessories. Invite your friends to our event’s Facebook Page so that they don’t miss out on the festivities – search for “Paddle Station’s Calgary Pride Raft on the Bow 2018!”

Best of all, we haven’t even mentioned the great cause that you will be supporting by joining us this weekend. A portion of this year’s 2018 Paddle Station Pride Raft on the Bow rafting ticket purchases will be donated to charity.

The Calgary Chinook Fund strives to support and build the LGBTQ Community in Calgary. Its primary means of supporting the community is through the Chinook Lesbian and Gay Endowment Fund. This Fund supports charitable organizations providing services, programming, education, and support for the LGBT community.

Now does that sound like an awesome way to enjoy a fun-filled Calgary outing with your family and friends or what?! You will not only be enjoying the sunshine with like-minded people, but also supporting a local foundation focused on equality and acceptance. Visit our website to choose from one of the Paddle Station’s Pride Weekend rafts or kayaks, or let us help you create a custom package of your own!

Book now before it’s too late – rafts are running out! #YourRiverIsWaiting
