Giant Pumpkin Regatta



Pumpkin racing will return in 2021!

The annual pumpkin regatta takes place on the first or second Saturday in October at Memorial Union in Lake Mendota. During the growing season, we cultivate giant pumpkins and transport them to Lake Mendota, where we race them around a set course. The public are welcome to the event, and we look forward to good paddling in 2021. Stay tuned for more details.
