Hydrofest Detroit Cancelled

Date: August 28, 2021

Location: Detroit River

logo WEB_UAW_GM_hydrofest_2016

Detroit Boat Races – Hydrofest 2021 has been cancelled until 2022.

“It is with great disappointment that our attempt to have a hydroplane race on the Detroit River will not happen,” said Weber. “Our board is adamant that we need to have a quality event that makes our sponsor proud and our fans happy. We worked well into June to put a program together that we felt could have been promoted and produced to meet those expectations. Unfortunately, we could not ensure DREI could meet those expectations with less than 60-days until the scheduled race weekend. We will now look forward to 2022 and continuing the tradition of boat racing on the Detroit River.”
