Summer Solstice Picnic & Paddle

Sunday June 23 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Summer is finally here – let’s give it a hearty welcome by packing a picnic and paddling on beautiful Canandaigua Lake! First, we will create a delicious picnic dinner in the New York Kitchen Hands-On Kitchen including Antipasto Stuffed Baguettes, Caprese Cous Cous Salad, Fruit Salad Skewers a canned Upstate NY NA Beverage from our Tasting Room.

After your picnic is packed, certified kayak instructors and licensed guides from the Saunders Finger Lakes Museum will lead the group on a paddle adventure starting near the gently rolling waters of Kershaw Park courtesy of Seager Marine boat rentals!  Your guide will provide instruction before we set off, and paddling tips along the way.  Watch as the late afternoon sun begins to dip toward the western hills during the first official week of summer and on one longest days of the year (Official Summer Solstice is 6/20 this year!).  Watch the waterfowl and look for fish as they revel in the high season, before returning to Kershaw Park to enjoy your picnic!

We can offer tandem and single kayaks, please call NY Kitchen if you are interested in a tandem kayak. Limited supply and will be reserved on a first come first serve basis.
