Lake Ellyn Cardboard Regatta

JuneJun 27 2020 10:00am - 03:00pm



Join us for a challenging, fun and wet adventure that combines cardboard, tape, creativity, and engineering. Build a cardboard boat and race it against other boats! In addition to the races themselves, boats will be eligible to win in other non-racing categories, including creativity, team spirit, and most spectacular sinking.

  • 9am to 10am: Boat check-in and inspection
  • 9am to 11am: Canoe rentals ($5 for 15 minutes)
  • 11am to ~3pm: Food Truck Picnic in the Park, Presented by the Glen Ellyn Fourth of July Committee
  • 12pm to ~3pm: Cardboard boat races

Enter a Boat: In order to enter, you’ll need to register and build your amazing boat in advance to bring to the race on June 27 (all participants must be at least 9 years of age). The Lake Ellyn Cardboard Regatta is a favorite part of summer because whether you sink or make it to the finish line, you’re going to have a blast. The fee is $50/boat. Learn more >
