The Great Trent River Raft Race

In the ’70s and early 80’s, there was an event….an event that drew thousands to the shores of the Trent River to watch a spectacle like no other. Hundreds of participants built homemade rafts and raced in The Great Trent River Raft Race.

Grab your kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddle boards....or grab a bunch of friends and show off your engineering skills by building a paddle raft or a pedal raft. Details are being added daily to our website www.thegreattrentriverraftrace.com.
