IUPUI Regatta

The IUPUI Regatta is a half-mile canoe race on the downtown canal in the heart of Indianapolis, Indiana. The event is held annually in late September. Established in 2009, the IUPUI Regatta has quickly become a signature event for IUPUI. This high-energy campus tradition involves both IUPUI’s campus and the Indianapolis community while benefiting the Stefan S. Davis IUPUI Regatta Scholarship.

The IUPUI Regatta offers entertainment for all, whether you are paddling in the race or not! Every year we dedicate a week of events, Regatta Week, to create excitement leading up to race day. On the day of the event, join us in activities designed to entertain race fans of all ages. Experience live entertainment from IUPUI organizations and local community bands, an Arts & Culture Fair, food and marketplace vendors, and our kid zone with inflatables.
