Join in on Austin’s newest tradition – The ATX Paddle Dash, a first-of-its-kind kayak race on Lady Bird Lake, followed by a social hour, with food and drinks provided. The competitive kayak and canoe race, hosted by Rowing Dock, is the second annual ATX Paddle Dash, dubbed the “Fastest Race in Texas” and the only kayak and canoe race that takes place in downtown Austin. All proceeds from this event will support Explore Austin and its mission of empowering youth through leadership, mentoring, and outdoor adventure.

If you don’t want to race, snag a general admission ticket to cheer on the participants of all ages and support a great cause.
