Every participant receives a raffle ticket to win a new kayak from The Outside World which will be awarded at the event. Space is limited so purchase your tickets now! 

Your tickets include complimentary boat rentals, shuttle services, dinner, a raffle ticket to win a new recreational kayak from The Outside World in Dawsonville and a copy of the Etowah River User's Guide.


Communities across North Georgia are working together to create the Etowah River Water Trail. Here's your chance to help make the dream of a 163-mile-long boating trail a reality by joining us for the second annual Etowah River Water Trail Rodeo! 

When: Sunday, Sept. 17, 1-8:00 p.m. 

Where: Forsyth County's Eagle's Beak Park

Who: YOU, and several dozen of your best paddling friends! 

Why: To raise money to build the Etowah River Water Trail 

How: Use the form below the map to register and purchase your tickets to the event online (Suggested Donation: $75 per person or $130 per couple). 

The event begins with an 7-mile paddle on the Etowah River. Shuttle service will be provided for you and your boat by event sponsors CRBI and Appalachian Outfitters.

After the paddle trip, we'll gather at our take out site at Eagle's Beak Park for catered dinner, auction and kayak raffle courtesy of The Outside World. 

All proceeds from the event will be used to help local communities develop new boat launch sites along the river, install signs and other information at public access points and promote the use of North Georgia's "best family paddling river." 

Registration fees include complimentary canoe/kayak rentals, shuttle service, barbecue dinner, drinks and a chance to win a new kayak from The Outside World.
