10th Annual Paddlepalooza

Celebrating our 10th Annual Paddlepalooza on Saturday, June 2, 2018


We are very excited to co-host the 10th Annual Paddlepalooza with the City of Rochester Hills!

The event will take place on an 8-mile stretch of the Clinton River, beginning at Riverside Park in downtown Auburn Hills (located at the corner of Auburn and Squirrel Roads) and ending at the Rivercrest Banquet Center (located at Avon and Livernois).

Start of mens race at Riverside Park


Event includes a race for seasoned paddlers (canoe and kayak) or a shorter, adventure paddle for  individuals looking to coast down the river and take in the sites! Both options include fun on the water, great scenery, wildlife, and lots of fresh air!


Womens Race down Clinton River
Men's Canoe Race

Registration is only $20, and participants are strongly encouraged to preregister. The event is not recommended for beginner paddlers because the river can be considered a difficult Class III rating at certain times of the year. Participants must be  at least 12 years of age, and all paddlers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Personal flotation devices are required. The rain date is June 16. 

Event information and application is available here. Online registration is available here. Additional questions can be answered by calling the Auburn Hills Recreation Department at 248.370.9353.


Please note that there is construction in the immediate area of Riverside Park. Please give yourself plenty of time to park and walk to the registration area. Signage for parking is bright orange and public lots are accessible off Primary Street.
