Ahoy matey’s!  You all ready  to impress us with your boat building and rowing skills?  The cardboard boat regatta at Northglenn Pirate Fest is the way to do it!  Built out of only cardboard, duct tape and paint we expect that you can make a boat float.  Designed boats will need to float across Webster Lake at EB Rains Park.

The cardboard boat regatta will be on Saturday, September 21.  The festival opens at 11 AM and boats need to be at the registration area by 12:30.  Registration will go from 11 AM – 12:30 PM. Races will start at 1pm. Additional race times will be posted as boats are registered.  Boats will be on display and reviewed to make sure that they are following all the rules.

This year the registration fee is just $20 for all boats regardless of size or number of riders.  

  • Check in will begin at 11:00 AM so that your boat can be on display for the attendees of the event.
  • Races begin at 1:00 PM and we will run multiple heats depending on size of boat and number of entries.
