Paddling Film Festival

Additional Information

Since 2006, the Reel Paddling Film Festival has been showcasing the very best paddling films. The World Tour screens in more than 120 cities around the world. Join us for a screening of some of this year’s best paddling films on April 25 in downtown Rockford at the Prairie Street Brewhouse. You’ll be inspired to explore rivers, lakes and oceans, push extremes, embrace an active outdoor lifestyle and appreciate the wild places. All while enjoying a craft brew, great food, and great company.
