23rd Annual Columbia Slough Regatta

23rd Annual Columbia Slough Regatta

Sunday August 06, 10:00am - 2:00pm

Join our on-the-water festival and celebrate the Columbia Slough! 

At this year’s Regatta, over 500 people will have the opportunity to rent a canoe or kayak from the Council (free of cost) to explore and learn more about this special hidden gem.  Despite the name, the Columbia Slough Regatta is not actually a race, but more of a leisurely wildlife-watching group paddle. The event celebrates the watershed with fun and free activities for community members to develop connections with nature and neighborhood resources.

Community partners tabling include:

Alder Creek Canoe and Kayak
Audubon Society of Portland
Bureau of Environmental Services
East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District
Multnomah County Elections
Nadaka Nature Park
Next Adventure
Oregon Department of Environmental Quality
Port of Portland
Portland Water Bureau

Featuring music by:

Adrian Xavier
