Located on Lake Arthur, the Regatta is the Region’s Premiere, All-Ages, Eco-Recreational Event

The 2024 Regatta on Moraine State Park’s South Shore will be held on August 3-4, 2024, with a weekend of free family fun!

The Moraine State Park Regatta showcases eco-recreational activities for all ages along the south shore of Lake Arthur. Featuring water and land recreational fun for all ages, nature-themed experiences, and vendors from the local community, the regatta has something for everyone!


THANK YOU to everyone who made the 24th annual Moraine State Park Regatta a huge success! We were thrilled to welcome over 20,000 attendees to the south shore for a few days of fun. And the rain that ended the event was a perfect way to cool off after a hot, sunny weekend.

Enjoy this video highlighting all the fun we had together as part of this year’s festivities.

“We had an absolute blast! My son is six and daughter is four, and we loved the food trucks & live music. We swam in the lake, played in the sand, & took our kayaks out … we made some great memories & appreciate the work that went into creating the event. Thank you!”

The Moraine State Park Regatta would not be a success without the support of our generous benefactors. Special thanks goes to our Regatta Sponsors.


The Regatta invites locals to go behind the scenes with us to make this community event a great one. We are thankful to those who donate their time and passion to such a great family event.

The numerous kids’ activities were wonderful. My littles had a great time doing activities during the day and we returned in the evening for s’mores and fireworks. Traffic control this year was great! … This year was clearly well-thought-out because traffic flowed nicely, and we were out in a reasonable amount of time.”
