Kingston Regatta and River Festival

In operation for more than 150 years, the Kingston Regatta is perhaps the oldest continuously run event in the borough. It is now a two-day festival of rowing for clubs, universities and schools, and over 200 races (one every 3-4 minutes) will take place between more than 300 crews. Facilities include seating and shade, commentary and refreshments including a licensed bar. Alongside the Kingston Regatta, the Kingston River Festival celebrates Kingston's rich maritime heritage and riverside restaurants and bars.
