October 23, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
The 7th Annual Wonderful Wabash is taking a new route this year! Join us on Saturday, October 23rd for the 7th annual Wonderful Wabash Canoe Event. This year we are partnering with Historic New Harmony and USI to feature the Smithsonian Museum on Main Street exhibition Water/Ways.
The route will start at the boat launch under the I64 Bridge on the Illinois side. We will stop at a sand bar partway for a break and educational presentations. We will end at the Atheneum in New Harmony where participants can explore this awesome exhibition Brats, chips, fruit and cookies will be served when you finish at the Atheneum. A school bus will transport participants to the starting point. Vehicles will be left at the Atheneum parking lot where we will finish. Float will take 4-5 hours. Everyone should be finished by 5:00 pm.
$10/person registration fee includes t-shirt and dinner.
Canoes available for rent $25/canoe. Limited quantities are available so register early.
You may bring your own canoe/kayak. If you are bringing your own equipment, drop off your boats 1 hour prior to your launch time at the I64 Boat Ramp then drive and park at the Atheneum in New Harmony. A volunteer will be at the starting point to watch the boats.
Due to limited space on the bus, there are two different launch times. Registration will be at the Atheneum 30 minutes prior to your departure time. First bus leaves at 9:30 am. Second bus leaves at 10:30 am. There are a limited number of seats on the bus, so you must ride the bus for your registered departure time.
