The Paddle For A Purpose charity event, supporting the local non-profit, Hearty Roots, is BACK for it's third year!

Mark your calendars for JUNE 8th, 2024! Purchase your tickets here

Born from the brains of fellow paddlers, the mission of Paddle for a Purpose is simple: get people out on the water with intention.

This year the paddle will launch from our dock here at Glidden Point and folks will paddle upriver, with the incoming tide, to the Damariscotta Town Landing. Then, the party will take place at Shuck Station on Main Street in Damariscotta! The party will include a live auction, local brews, food for purchase from Shuck Station, and live music from Primo Cubano. Lucy's Granola of Blue Hill is donating the pre-paddle snacks and coffee will be provided. 

Don't have paddling equipment? No problem, head on over to Midcoast Kayak for a rental. Be sure to book in advance if you know you will need one. Inventory is not guaranteed.
