The 2023 General Clinton Canoe Regatta kicks off on Friday, May 26th, for a weekend of fun for all ages!

A Memorial Day weekend tradition for 61 years, the festival features daily entertainment, a flea market and craft area including their new Artisan Row, mouth-watering food and treats, a carnival midway with rides and games by Main Event Amusements, and so much more!

The highlight of the festival is the canoe races held throughout the weekend, including the 70-mile endurance races on Sunday – the world’s longest single-day flat water canoe race!

Special events during the festival include fireworks displays on Saturday and Sunday at 10 pm each night, the Clinton Clash Wrestling Tournament on Saturday, and Kids Day on Saturday, where several youth events take place, along with a bicycle giveaway by Main Event Amusements.

Carnival ride specials are on Friday from 6-10 pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 1-5 pm and 6-10 pm each day. Wristbands are $25 per wristband/per session.

Be sure to check the Regatta’s website for a complete schedule of events throughout the weekend and for canoe race registration.
