This year’s Regatta, RegattaX, will be in a new location on the canal!
We are celebrating 10 years of tradition with 10X the excitement! That starts now with this announcement during our 10 Days of Regatta, the kickoff to the 110th-anniversary celebrations! During these 10 days, we have been tabling, fundraising for the Regatta scholarship fund, providing community service opportunities, and partnering with the Student Activities Programming Board to help foster student engagement. We have also conducted a social media scavenger hunt, #RegattaXMarksTheSpot, leading the campus to our new location!
The event will take place on the south end of the canal, with the race starting between Military Park and the State Museum. As always, the race will be on the canal, but this year the festival will be held at Military Park. This new location provides an expanded event space that will allow us to provide more entertainment, food, vendors, games, contests, and FUN! We are hoping to involve more schools and student organizations in the festival area this year. We are also excited to be introducing an Arts & Culture Fair in addition to our Community Festival Area.
“I am excited about this move because it is bringing the Regatta closer than ever to the heart of both the IUPUI campus and downtown Indianapolis.” -Jason Kabir, Executive Director of the 2018 Regatta Steering Committee
As the culmination of the 10 Days of Regatta, we invite the IUPUI and Indianapolis communities to explore our new location and meet the student leaders behind this year’s event on Friday, April 20 from 11 AM – 1 PM. Find us at the Regatta tent in the Ohio Street Basin of the canal.
