Welcome to Floatzilla, the largest paddle event on the Mississippi! Held annually in the beautiful Quad Cities region, Floatzilla brings together paddling enthusiasts from all over the country for a day of fun and adventure on the Mississippi River.

With over a thousand participants and the river closed down to commercial watercraft, Floatzilla offers a unique opportunity to explore the area's natural beauty. Whether you're an experienced paddler or just starting, there's something for everyone at Floatzilla. And after a day on the water, the fun doesn't stop! Join us for our post-paddle event, featuring live music and food vendors, where you can relax and connect with other paddling enthusiasts.
