River Racing

Experience a weekend full of world-class, automotive-powered hydroplane racing with the 2017 Evansville Hydrofest this Labor Day weekend.

The hydroplanes will compete for the American Powerboat Association’s North American Championship along the Ohio River at Evansville’s Downtown waterfront Sept. 1-3. The powerboats, with speeds that can reach over 170 miles per hour, will compete on the 1.25 miles race course from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the weekend of Hydrofest.

The event, presented by Evansville Events, Inc. (a nonprofit organization of the Evansville Convention and Visitors Bureau), will feature more than 40 teams from all over the U.S. and Canada.

Tickets for Hydrofest now are available for purchase. If you would like to volunteer at Hydrofest, you also can sign up on the event’s website.
