Yankton Riverboat Days Kayak Run
SDCKA is proud to support a new kayak race this year during Riverboat Days. Head down to Yankton and try a good beginner race. 6.5 miles down the Missouri River is a great way to be introduced to kayak racing.

Downtown Sioux Falls River Fest
Once you’ve completed your race in Yankton, join us downtown Sioux Falls for a fun evening on the water. Bring your boat anytime during the evening and paddle up and down the Big Sioux River. Live music, food vendors and thousands of people will be along the River Greenway. How many opportunities do you get to decorate your boat with lighting (optional), paddle at night downtown and watch fireworks from your boat! Come anytime during the evening. Launch either from the River Greenway Ramp (might be busy) or from behind Killian College downriver.

Sunday, August 18
River clean-up – Downtown Sioux Falls
Keep your boat on your vehicle and join us Sunday for a river clean-up. We’ll meet at the River Greenway Canoe/Kayak Access next to Cherapa Place and work our way to Fawick Park.
