New date - September 2022

Dear Visitors of the Paddledays canoe show in Kassel,

in the name of BV Kanu we unfortunately have to inform you that we had to decide today to postpone the fair in Kassel for one year. Due to the increasing numbers of corona infections and the associated requirements of the authorities, we can no longer guarantee a safe execution of such an event.
Nevertheless, we believe in the success of this fair and we will inform you shortly about a new fair date for autumn 2022.
Thank you very much for your understanding.
