Get your row on

Regatta on the Oklahoma River

Did you know that there’s a world-class rowing site right in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City? In fact, numerous local companies and organizations throughout OKC have teams who hone their rowing skills and compete annually against teams from all over during the Oklahoma Regatta Festival. This year on Oct. 1-4, more than 2,500 athletes will gather to compete in the Boathouse District.

Not only is it a fun-filled, exhilarating time for participants but spectators also have a unique opportunity to see OKC in a whole new light. Head of the Oklahoma races will include 2.5 mile races against the clock each day where participants compete for the best time. The 500-meter night sprints Saturday evening will surely be a sight not to miss. Events are held in different categories including collegiate, masters and junior rowing as well as kayak and dragon boat racing. But the fun isn’t just limited to participants. Each year a free family festival including games, fun and great food is held to coincide with the Regatta and each evening concludes with a fireworks display over the Oklahoma River!

One event that we are anxiously awaiting is Quixotic Cirque Nouveau. We’re not sure if we are more in awe of the acrobatics and phenomenal artistry or the fact that the show is literally taking place at the top of the six-story SandRidge Sky Trail. Bring the whole family to enjoy this unique, free event. Just don’t forget the blankets!
