Reunion Village

Since 1965, the Charles River has welcomed a breadth of athletes from near and far to participate in the world’s largest two-day Regatta. But the fun isn’t limited to competitors—there are many opportunities for spectators to share in the weekend’s racing and festivities.

Whether you’re a spectator, a competitor, or simply in need of refreshment, be sure to check out the 11th annual Reunion Village at the 2013 Head Of The Charles Regatta®. The Village offers a fun and relaxed atmosphere located at the halfway point in the race on the Boston side of the Charles River.

Everyone is welcome at the Village. Clubs, schools, alumni groups, parents, boosters and travel groups are all urged to visit! Admission is $5/person.
