WELCOME TO THE LARGEST CANOE RACES IN THE STATE OF INDIANA!
What is Brookville Canoefest?
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.
