The Head of the Schuylkill keepsake program book lists each school and competitor competing in this year's regatta.

Our QR code on the cover will help you access race results.

The Schuylkill River is within walking distance to many of the city's charming neighborhoods and off site parking. Free continuous shuttle buses will take spectators to sites along the 2.5-mile racecourse.

The Vendor/Festival tent is the center of activity and will be located at the Three Angels Statues…at the main launching site for out-of-town crews.

There will be an ATM machine located in the Festival Tent.

Where to watch

The best place to watch your favorite crew and enjoy the fun is at the Three Angels Statues, the site of our regatta festival featuring our favorite vendors, food, music, games, awards ceremonies and lots of fun. You can also buy great rowing and workout gear and the Official Head of the Schuylkill program book and T-shirts! Bring the kids, for fun and food and great racing.

The Three Angels Statues are just one mile north of Boathouse Row on Kelly Drive…a very walkable distance from Center City…and yes, there will be plenty of port-a-potties.

If you come for the regatta plan some time to enjoy Philadelphia!

Philadelphia offers one of America's favorite regattas and so much more. It has just been named one of the top cities to shop (within walking distance of the regatta) and has museums and other cultural institutions that are too great to miss (also within walking distance). If you're looking at colleges, there are more than 28 in Philadelphia alone.

You can visit a different restaurant each night and sample some of the best food in the U.S.
