race and festival information

race day schedule and events

Race Day is an all-day affair, with races running from about 8:45am until the Championship race around 4:00pm. The Opening Ceremony officially starts the event, then the rounds of heats begin. These determine placement in divisions for the afternoon racing following the hour-long lunch break. Racing to determine winners of each division run through the afternoon, culminating in the Grand Championship Race and Trophy Presentation!


Festival highlights can be found elsewhere throughout the grounds on Race Day. Local food vendors, exhibitors, artists, and other small businesses will have booths spread throughout the park. Strategically-located drink stations will serve cold alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages all day, and the children will have a place to play at the Children's Village with inflatables and the Splash Pad!


This event is free and open to the public! The entrance to the park is located through the tunnel at 246 Commerce Street. An information tent will be located just inside the park near the tunnel. Free Race Guides and a map of the Festival grounds will be available there. See the "Venue Info" tab for information on the park.
