Is your life jacket secured? Buckle up! Regatta is hitting a big milestone this year and is celebrating its 15th canoe race and homecoming event. The entire IUPUI community and city of Indianapolis are welcome to take part in the festivities and cheer on our teams competing in the half-mile canoe race to see who has the fastest boat.
Over the years, Regatta has continued to add onto this university tradition. Now, attendees can spend the whole day in Military Park watching live performances, taking a spin on one of our festival rides, connecting with event sponsors and student organizations and so much more. Here’s what you need to know so you don’t miss out on any Regatta activities:
