The Annual BBP Regatta Returns for its 51st Year

After celebrating its half-century anniversary last year, the Buffalo Bayou Partnership Regatta is still going strong as the largest canoe and kayak race in Texas! Every year, hundreds of paddlers take part in this long-standing Houston tradition in support of Buffalo Bayou Partnership.
The 51st Buffalo Bayou Partnership Regatta presented by Gillman Subaru takes place on March 11! Participants ages 12 and older can compete in solo, tandem, or unlimited boating categories, or paddle for fun along a 15-mile stretch of Buffalo Bayou.

Spectators are invited to cheer along the race route, and finish line festivities will begin at Allen’s Landing at 11am, with an awards ceremony, refreshments, and activities provided by local businesses and sponsors. Food and drink will also be available to purchase.
