Each year the annual Brookville Canoefest attracts more than 2,500 participants and visitors from the hometown of Brookville, Southeast Indiana, Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. Participants come to the event to paddle in races on scenic Whitewater River, enjoy delicious chicken, play games, listen to great entertainment, watch the most spectacular fireworks display in the region, and enjoy time with friends. Help us celebrate the uniqueness of this event and over 50 years of paddling in Brookville.
