The Grand Rapids Rowing Club welcomes Junior and Masters teams to compete in a 1,000 meter sprint race on an outstanding stretch of the Grand River. The Grand Regatta has been a highlight of Grand Rapids’ sporting and social calendar for over 30 years. In 2017 we moved the regatta to The Grand Rapids Rowing Club boathouse at 291 North Park NW, on one of the most picturesque stretches of the Grand River. 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 30-40 races, everyone can expect a full, fun day of racing. 

We are proud to be the rowing host for the Meijer State Games of Michigan. Sporting events of all kinds are scheduled to take place throughout our great city during the last week of June.

Registration for the Grand Regatta will open on March 1 on Regatta Central.
