Wayne County Canoe Classic

The Annual Wayne County Canoe Classic will take place on April 23, 2017. The Honesdale area Jaycees and the Wayne Bank are the hosts of this wonderful event!

Registration starts at 9 am at the Wayne County Fairgrounds

The race begins at 11 am.

Course: Racers will canoe from the Wayne County Fairgrounds on the Dyberry Creek. Contestants will connect with the Lackawaxen River at Industrial Point in Honesdale, and continue through the borough and down to the softball fields in White Mills, where the finish line is located. 

Representatives from the Honesdale River Project will be running the concession stand at the finish line in order to raise funds and awareness for projects in summer of 2017! 

We'll also have an info table on hand in order to answer any questions and Black and Brass Coffee Roasters will be slingin' java during registration and at the finish line!
