Due to the impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on our nation, we have made the very tough decision to postpone the 70th anniversary of the Madison Gold Cup Regatta and 3rd Annual Roostertail Music Festival (July 2-5, 2020). We will most certainly miss hosting this exciting 4th of July weekend of racing on the river, and music on the riverfront, but we are already looking forward to next summer. We hope you will mark your calendars for

July 1-4, 2021 and join us for the 71st Madison Regatta.
We appreciate our committee's hard work and we will continue to plan next year's event. We are thankful to our sponsors and partners who are staying with us, already committed to 2021, and the racing organizations H1 Unlimited and our Miss Madison Unlimited Hydroplane team- who are supporting our decision. All those involved understand the travel restrictions have all but halted our planning process.
Madison Regatta President Matt True reports "Race and Music fans that purchased 2020 tickets can expect an email indicating ticket transfer
over to the 2021 event dates, July 1-4."
We want all of our supporters from across our nation and the world to have the opportunity to come and enjoy the weekend - stress free and healthy! So, stay well and stay positive. And, join us for 2021 Madison Regatta & Roostertail Music Festival!

55th Annual Tri-City Water Follies Event to be Postponed
KENNEWICK, June 1, 2020 – It is with great disappointment that we announce the 55th Annual Tri-City Water Follies event set for July 24-26, 2020 will be postponed. “This decision was not made lightly and was reached after much discussion and consultation with local leaders. With the available Safe Start Washington information, the board members voted to postpone,” says Kathy Powell, Event Director. “We have decided that due to the current COVID-19 policies it is not feasible to have an event on the last weekend of July in 2020. We are hoping to be able to hold the event later in the year, and would like to thank all of our fans, volunteers, partners, and sponsors for their support and flexibility during this difficult time.”

     “The HAPO Columbia Cup and Over the River Airshow is a defining event for the region, and we want to make sure we are compliant with state regulations regarding COVID-19. An event of this magnitude takes months to plan, and the uncertainty surrounding the viability of the planned dates of July 24-26th has forced the Water Follies Board of Directors to postpone our event. We are hopeful we can still provide action on the water and excitement in the skies at a later date this year,” said Colin Hastings, President, Tri-City Water Follies.

     The Tri-City Water Follies office will be contacting guests to arrange for refunds and answer questions. Stay safe and stay tuned.
