Blazing Paddles Film Festival

Come have a fun-filled 'movie night' and ignite your passion for adventure, action, and the wild wet world of paddling!  Be exhilarated with amazing big-screen stories at your choice of TWO venues this year: the Black Box Theatre, on the campus of Edmonds Community College in Lynnwood on Thursday, May 29, and at the historic Lincoln Theater in Mount Vernon on Friday, May 30. Both shows run 7-10 p.m

The best films from the international competition at the National Paddling Film Festival will be featured at this second-annual event. These award-winning films will present whitewater kayaking, sea kayaking, canoeing, rafting, SUPing, and surf skiing in amazing locations around the world, showcasing these sports and the people doing them, inspiring you to get out there and enjoy the wild places that we paddle!

Blazing Paddles is a benefit event for Washington Water Trails Association—a portion of the proceeds, and 100% of the sale of raffle tickets will support WWTA's valuable programs. Win a new paddle, a three-season tent, a dry bag, or other great paddling/camping gear donated by our sponsors!

Both shows offer easy access off I-5, free parking, a theatre full of outdoor-minded folks, beer, wine and snacks for sale—oh, and did we mention the 40-foot screen?! Tickets available at the door.
