Join us for Brookville Canoefest and enjoy family fun, great music,
the best chicken you have ever tasted, the art of painting paddles,
talent contests, exhibitors, awards, canoeing and kayaking races and much more.
Brookville Canoefest is always held the last Friday and Saturday
in June. Canoefest is a non-profit 501C3 organization striving to
bring appreciation to the sport of canoeing and kayaking as well as
knowledge of the sport to better facilitate camaraderie among individuals of all ages.
Brookville Canoefest provides a venue for the public to better
appreciate the natural resources of the community and to become
future stewards of the environment.
Proceeds from Brookville Canoefest benefit the entire Brookville
community through enhancements to the local park system, beautification
efforts and future education programs and events.
There is a grant at the Franklin County Community Foundation that
gives every year to the improvement and/or maintenance of the town park.
We have recently donated a $10,000.00 scoreboard for the park which
benefits the football teams that play there. Also, in 2014 we
donated $4,000.00 to help build a new handicapped accessible bathroom.
Our goal is to create safe and affordable opportunities for our
children to learn teamwork and be able to enjoy the great outdoors
through fishing, camping, water sports, paddle sports, boating, hiking and more.
