Whatever Floats Your Boat

Race a DIY boat down Marden Creek!

Try your hand at building a biodegradable boat to be raced through a restored stretch of creek. Participants will have approximately 30 minutes to build a boat (all materials will be provided) before they take their maiden voyage down Marden Creek.

Learn about the stream restoration work that the Speed Valley Chapter - Trout Unlimited Canada has completed and future plans for restoring Guelph’s creeks.

Please wear appropriate footwear, rubber boots or waders and be prepared to get wet!

Don’t forget your camera -- we want to see your photos from the 2020 2Rivers Festival! Tag @2RiversFestival and use the hashtag #2Rivers Photo on Facebook and Twitter! They could end up on the cover of next year’s Festival Guide (with your consent)!
