The Hoosier Regatta

is known for its great racing, legendary hospitality, delicious food, and its family-friendly autumn atmosphere. Other traditions contribute to the fun, like the famous hot-buttered rum served after Saturday’s racing and, of course, “The Program”, an entertaining and lively raffle that follows Saturday night’s steak dinner.
