Open Canoe Festival

Open Canoe Festival

Produced by : Paul Villecourt / Outdoor & Compagnie.

The Open Canoe Festival is today the biggest rendezvous dedicated to canoe lovers from Europe’s four corners.

During 3 days, the charming village of Mirabel-et-Blacons (located between Lyon and Avignon, 30 Km from Valence and the Rhône Valley) becomes the European Canoe capital. The Festival is organized in a charming 4 star campsite located on the bank of the Drôme river. All the meals and parties are sheltered under a beautiful giant tipi giving a very special look and atmosphere.

The Festival offers 3 days of technical and safety clinics, boat tests, manufacturer booths, free tasting of local cuisine, parties, a big prize lottery and of course some fantastic runs on the turquoise waters of the Drôme river, which offers more than 30 Km of easy and scenic paddling at the gates of the Provence area.

The workshops are dedicated to many outdoor themes and activities : outdoor cooking, the art of bivouacking, no trace camping, river fauna, outdoor first aid basics, photography, relaxation, canoe fishing, ropecraft and knots, fire camps, camping tips and tricks…

Since 2010, more than 2000 paddlers have participated to the OCF : join the tribe !
