The Grand Regatta has been a highlight of Grand Rapids' sporting and social calendar for 30 years. Since 1987, the regatta has been held in Riverside Park, on one of the most picturesque stretches of the Grand. This ideal location, just north of downtown Grand Rapids, provides a perfect backdrop for an exciting and enjoyable day. As one of the longest running rowing events in West Michigan, the Grand Regatta is a much-loved tradition for competitors and spectators of all ages.
The Grand Regatta attracts hundreds of competitors and spectators each summer, with approximately 20-30 races keeping the excitement going for each day of racing.
In 2017, we are proud to host the regatta as the official rowing event for the State Games of America, which will take place jointly with the traditional events at the Grand Regatta. New this year will be a juniors-only Midwest Recruiting Regatta, which will take place on Saturday, and with a dinner on Friday night meant to give athletes and coaches/parents/guardians a chance to learn about opportunities available in the Midwest to row with collegiate programs.
