Columbia Slough Regatta Celebrates 20th Anniversary!


The Columbia Slough Regatta is a kayak and canoe event for all ages.  This on-the-water festival celebrates Portland’s hidden waterway and its habitat for bald eagles, turtles, fish, otters and much more. This year’s launch point in the upper (eastern ) section of the Slough boasts beautiful views of Mt. Hood.

At this year's Regatta, over 400 people will launch into the safe slack water of the Columbia Slough. Despite its name, the Columbia Slough Regatta is not actually a race, it’s more of a leisurely wildlife-watching, blackberry-eating group paddle. Paddlers are likely to see Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Western Painted Turtles, Beavers and more!

Participants are encouraged to bring their own human powered boats or sign up to use one available through the Columbia Slough Watershed Council.   

A donation of $8.00/person is requested. Pre-registration required. Sign up Online or call (503) 281-1132 to register. Spots fill quickly; register today!
