Join us for the 22nd Annual Stonewall Regatta and watch teams from across the US battle it out on "DC's other' river", the Anacostia. Fast paced races, cheering crowds, food trucks, music, no admission, and sunshine… What's not to love?!
The event is free to all (no admission).
Where to watch:
For the best view of the finish line and the pre- and post-race action (along with concessions and bathrooms), join us at the boathouse. For the best view of the complete race, we recommend the Anacostia Trail pedestrian bridge or across the river at Anacostia Park. We will post a race day and parking information sheet with details and maps closer to the event.
When to watch:
The races will run approximately 8:30am- 4:00pm. A final heat sheet with race times will be posted here closer to the event. In addition, real time results will be available on Regatta Central.
What should I bring?
Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase from some of DC’s awesome food trucks (to be announced). However, you are welcome to bring your own food and beverages as well. There is some space for team tents and chairs alongside the last part of the race course. Don’t forget water and sunscreen!
A commemorative regatta t-shirt will also available be for purchase.
