2017 IUPUI Regatta

Friday, 23 September 2016 - 10:30am - 5:00pm

The IUPUI Regatta is a half-mile canoe relay race on the downtown Indianapolis canal held in mid-September each year.  The event utilizes the downtown waterway from 11th Street (Admiral Spruance Basin) to Walnut Street (Walnut Street Basin) for not only a boat race, but an interactive festival for those who attend. The number of people who have attended the event has grown to nearly 10,000 attendees in 2014. This increase in attendance is not limited to just students, faculty/staff, and alumni, but now also accommodates an increasingly diverse audience from the Central Indiana area.  

Support the School of Science as they paddle their way to victory at the 8th Annual IUPUI Regatta.

The School of Science will have a handful of student club and alumni teams participating in this year's event. Show your school pride by Show science pride by wearing your science related apparel. Check in at the science booth to get your official noisemakers and cheer our teams to victory!

Welcome back School of Science alumni!

The School of Science is again welcoming back science graduates to a special VIP reception for alumnifamily and friends to celebrate the School's continued success and growth and to cheer on our Science teams competing in this year's exciting canoe race on the canal.  This year we are partnering with representatives from the School of Engineering and Technology who will also be leading experiments and activities throughout the day.

Fun for the whole family.

The Regatta also has designed to entertain children of all ages – clowns, face painters, IUPUI student organizations host activities for kids and college students, and live entertainment from Indianapolis area bands make this festive event a can't miss experience.
