Festivals & Contests

The fun-filled festival is back

This year’s festival will be filled with games, inflatables, rides, student organizations, food trucks, and art and culture fair, and music performances from talented student groups at IUPUI. Everyone is invited to the festival, including community members. Join us in Military Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Dog Costume Contest

IUPUI’s iconic Dog Costume Contest is happening again this year! Registration will be on the day of Regatta, so all you have to do is dress up your dog and show up. First place, second place, and third place winners will receive a prize.

Did you know that there will also be ADOPTABLE DOGS present at Regatta? Come prepared to fall in love with and take a furry friend home!

Student organization tabling

Student organizations are welcome to table at Regatta again this year. There will be two shifts. One from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and another from 1 to 4 p.m. Each shift costs $25, and you are able to sign up for one or both shifts. Email regfinan@iu.edu to reserve your space now.


We are looking for volunteers to help us execute this year’s event. You will get a free T-shirt for volunteering and volunteer hours. We couldn’t do this without your help!
