KayaXpedition - June 2024

kayaXpedition logo for Chesapeake VA

For those looking for yet another reason to visit the region, head to Chesapeake, VA for KayaXpedition. This family-friendly festival held yearly at Oak Grove Lake Park has something for absolutely everyone.

Learn or Practice

Put on by Chesapeake Parks, Recreation and Tourism, the annual KayaXpedition seeks to promote the use of the city’s many waterways.

Bring your own kayak/canoe/stand-up paddleboard (SUP), or use one of our kayaks/canoes.

Enjoy the Day

With over 65 acres of natural beauty, Oak Grove Lake Park is the perfect location to celebrate the start of summer. The spectacular man-made lake at the heart of the park offers calm waters ideal for canoeing or kayaking. Although the park does not typically allow kayaking and canoeing, a special exception is made for this yearly event.

Spend the day on the lake in your vessel, or bask in the natural surroundings onshore while enjoying quality time with friends, family, and new acquaintances. A 1.5-mile trail runs the perimeter of the lake, so you can also watch the activities from dry land while you hang out on foot or bike. 

There's something for everyone including music and a food truck. And, of course, to fully enjoy this outdoor experience, don’t forget your sunscreen.
