Anything else like Paddlefest out there?

Hi all,

A buddy and I have been going to Paddlefest in BV the last couple years and we love the fact that we can do all the Classes and Instructional stuff. Unfortunately, it is now scheduled on a weekend that makes it tough for me to go. Are there any other River Festivals/Events anywhere in the country with the instructional tilt like Paddlefest? It seems like the other events(just from reading) are more about beer, jams and watching other people kayak (rodeo's). I love all of the above but I only get a handful of days a year to recreate and I want to DO, not watch others do.

Thanks for any ideas. I'd be willing to go anywhere in North America to get a little Kayak culture with team guys, instruction/group paddles, and of course a little beer and music you know.
