The Water and Dirt Festival, presented by Canadian Nuclear Laboratoriesis a 10 day festival that will be happening August 4-14, 2022. Born out of the popular and successful Upper Ottawa River Race and Paddle Festival, this new event adds land based outdoor adventure sports to the already popular water based sports. A four-way municipal partnership between Petawawa, Pembroke, Laurentian Valley and North Algona Wilberforce allows new additions like mountain bike racing, skateboarding, whitewater kayaking, BMX, and cross country running to be added to long running events such as the Upper Ottawa River Race and the Kayak Fishing Tournament.

Other activities include demos, clinics, kids races, and more enhanced by great food and performances by local entertainers.

We are grateful to our sponsors as this event could not run without them.

Please visit the Water and Dirt Festival website for more information about this awesome new festival!

This event is jointly hosted by the Town of Petawawa, the City of Pembroke, Laurentian Valley, and North Algona Wilberforce.
