OCF 2023: April 28 to May 1st.

The OCF is back in 2023 and this time we’re going to repaint everything!

After celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2022, Europe’s largest festival dedicated to canoeing and its culture is back for an eleventh edition that will change a lot of things!

  • New website that finally works on phones, it’s about time!
  • New registration and payment system, much simpler, especially when you arrive at the Festival where you will just have to flash your confirmation email. No more waiting!
  • A new price to allow us to organise the Festival more serenely. It really costs nearly 265 € per person, whereas it was proposed at 110 € in 2022. The price difference was covered with sponsors and subsidies, which are dropping, while everything is increasing sharply! We will therefore increase the prices (150 € for registrations made before 15 March, 100 € for non paddling participants, 60 € for children under 12 and free for children under 5), but in return, we have the ambition of an organisation without any equivalent in the world!
  • And finally, a new workshop management system that will allow you to choose your workshops in advance and not on the spot while queuing.

What does not change is the atmosphere, the richness of the workshops, the best instructors in Europe, the big prize lottery, the good food, the concert… The only thing that is not guaranteed is the weather… and even there, we are working on it!

Registration opens in February 2023. But make sure to book your weekend: from April 28th to May 1st 2023!
