It’s a 28-year tradition! Join in the fun with your own cardboard boat or spend the day at the park and watch as determined captains and their crews try to win the race before springing a leak. Some will sink and others will float, that’s the fun of a cardboard boat.

The theme for the 2017 Regatta is Fairfax County’s 275th Anniversary. You’ll want to come check out all the creative ways our boat builders “build” on this year’s theme.

Building a cardboard boat? Here are some insider tips for boat-building success and race-day prep. Good luck captains and crews!
