Now entering it’s 28th year in 2023, the Watkins Glen Waterfront Festival is anchored by the popular Cardboard Boat Regatta held on Saturday of Father’s Day weekend. Join us at the Seneca Harbor Park on Saturday, June 17th from 11am-8pm!
Stroll through the Concourse de Cardboard, check out the cardboard boats and meet the crews. Then laugh and applaud the bold and adventurous Captains and Crews of the Cardboard Boat Regatta as they bravely sail their cardboard crafts from launch to finish line!
In addition to the races, a full lineup of food, beverage, and craft vendors will be onsite, as well as live music. Stay until the end to enjoy a set from the local legends, Rust!
Just some of the fun you’ll see!
