Oklahoma Regatta Festival
The 2016 Oklahoma Regatta Festival will take place Sept. 29 – Oct. 2 in the Boathouse District, downtown on the Oklahoma River. The four-day celebration of rowing, kayaking, dragon boating, whitewater rafting and family fun includes the Oklahoma City University Head of the Oklahoma race, OGE NightSprints…and a family festival featuring live music, food trucks, beer gardens, a front row seat for all the racing – and RIVERSPORT Adventures!
The OCU Head of the Oklahoma includes 2.5 mile head racing during the day featuring teams from across the country competing in collegiate, masters, and junior rowing as well as kayak and dragon boat racing.
The thrill of night racing returns as the 2016 OGE NightSprints will set the Oklahoma River ablaze! The 500-meter OGE NightSprints are held on the river after the sun goes down, creating an electrifying atmosphere for competitors and spectators alike.
Bring a lawn chair or blanket to enjoy racing on the Oklahoma River, then check out the action at RIVERSPORT Rapids and Adventures. Be sure to stop by the Big Water Grill restaurant and bar, and RIVERSPORT Outfitters for a tshirt, souvenir – or the sunscreen you forgot to bring!
