Independence Day Regatta Traffic Patterns






Parks on Tap, Philadelphia’s traveling beer garden that gives back, will be on Strawberry Mansion bridge 1 to 11 pm Friday & Saturday and noon to 10 pm Sunday. It’s an easy walk – there is a stone staircase from Kelly Drive (under the bridge, far side, near the police barricades) up to the bridge.

Bring a reusable water bottle!! There are two water fountains available along the course; one near the launch dock & the other near the grandstands. We will also have large water dispensers at the Regatta HQ tent, located near the return dock and St Joe’s Boathouse.

The 9th Annual Independence Day College Expo will be Sunday, July 1. The registration deadline has been extended to July 1 for rowers and June 24th for coaches.

We can always use volunteers: timing support, hospitality, dockmasters, trailer parking and more. Check out our Volunteer page for more info and to sign up.
