Sidelaunch Days & SUPs Take Over Collingwood Harbour

Sidelaunch Days are almost upon us. From August 1-3, Collingwood‘s first harbour festival will take over the Georgian Bay shoreline. Sidelaunch Days Festival is a celebration of Collingwood’s rich history of shipbuilding and Great Lakes innovation.

If you’ve never paddled the Bay this will be an ideal time to hop on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP).
