Annual Day on The River

Come down to the Foundry Wharf, at 625 2nd Street, to try out all kinds of human-powered craft with the help of members of the Petaluma Small Craft Center, whose goal is to increase river access, build a public small craft rental center in the turning basin, and build a community boathouse on the Petaluma River.

Come try Hawaiian outrigger canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddle boards, pedal boats, old fashioned rowing boats and 8-person rowing shells! Bring the whole family and make it a day. Members will have tables with information about the different kinds of boating you can experience on the river, and there will be casual babysitting for those too small to take part in the boating experience.

Dozens of volunteers from local boating clubs will be there to help anyone and everyone who wants to experience the thrill of small boats. Note; height and age restrictions may apply to certain on-the-water activities.

For more information, contact Greg Sabourin at or (707) 293-3685.
