Oklahoma Regatta Festival

Head of the Oklahoma Athletes and Coaches

The 17th annual Oklahoma City University (OCU) Head of the Oklahoma regatta will take place on the Oklahoma River October 5-6, 2021 as part of Oklahoma City’s premier fall event, the Oklahoma Regatta Festival- a celebration of rowing, kayaking, dragon boating and family fun on the Oklahoma River.

In addition to the OCU Head of the Oklahoma, this year’s festival included OGE NightSprints and a family festival featuring food from some of Oklahoma City’s most popular food trucks, a beer garden, and a front row seat for all of the races! Every year the Oklahoma Regatta Festival happens in the Boathouse District on the Oklahoma River, adjacent to downtown Oklahoma City and the Bricktown entertainment district. With a sidewalk following the Bricktown canal to the Oklahoma River, crews staying in Bricktown hotels can easily walk to the venue.


Presented by Oklahoma City University (OCU), the Head of the Oklahoma is one of the top collegiate rowing regattas in the country. The 2019 OCU Head of the Oklahoma attracted 1,000+ athletes from 40+ collegiate and community rowing clubs, with top crews including the OKC National High Performance Team. Teams will compete in the 4000m Head of the Oklahoma head race on Saturday with racing beginning at 10a.
