OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (June 26, 2024) - Rowing enthusiasts and community-minded individuals are invited to be part of the excitement at RowFest 2024, a nine-day celebration of rowing hosted by USRowing at RIVERSPORT in Oklahoma City's Boathouse District. 


The event is the first time USRowing has brought together two marquis events, Youth National Championships and Masters National Championships, as a singular event.  


July 13–21 rowers from across the nation will converge in OKC to compete for national titles across various categories, including youth, U23, open, and masters divisions, with races spanning 2000-meter and 1000-meter distances. The event will also feature fast-paced 500-meter sprints, relay races, indoor competitions, night races, and coastal rowing demonstrations. 


Beyond the races, RowFest will offer a vibrant atmosphere with a vendor village, social events, live music, and a beer garden, alongside community-building sessions and learning opportunities in the state-of-the-art RIVERSPORT OKC facilities. 


To ensure the success of this premier event, RowFest 2024 is recruiting 50–75 volunteers per day to assist with various roles including race operations, athlete hospitality, and event setup. 


"We want rowers from across the country to have a great experience here and to do that, we need volunteers who can showcase our Oklahoma hospitality," said Noah Ramos, Volunteer Coordinator for RIVERSPORT. "This is a unique opportunity to be part of a dynamic sporting event while making a meaningful contribution to our community." 


Volunteers can sign up for shifts and learn more about opportunities by visiting GivePulse or contacting Noah Ramos at nramos@riversportokc.org
