We’re happy to announce that we’re bringing in the A-Team, Steve Fisher and Pat Keller, to the 2016 National Paddling Film Festival as Guest Hosts.
Steve initiated a grand plan in 2015 to raise funds to create an instructional video with some of the world’s finest kayakers, made it a reality, and spent a good portion of late last year filming on the Zambezi. Pat is one of the stars in that show. They’re going to tell us all about that adventure and some of their other adventures on the Saturday night of the fest (02/20).
Both Pat and Steve have had profound impacts on the world of whitewater. Steve has evolved into one of the best paddlesport filmmakers and Pat has evolved into one of the world’s most talented kayakers. We’re looking forward to hearing about their exploits and giving them both a big ol’ Kentucky welcome.
Festival tickets are $25 at the door. Cash or check only. Children under 12, free.
Advanced tickets will be available for $20 online starting the first week in January.
