ABOUT US

Established in 1986, the Maine Canoe Symposium is a volunteer-run, non-profit, weekend event. The Symposium encourages participants of all ages to develop an understanding and appreciation of the diversity of North American canoeing heritage and to develop canoeing and related skills through educational workshops, presentations, and hands-on instruction.
