BAYADA Regatta

The BAYADA Regatta is the nation’s oldest and largest all-adaptive rowing competition for athletes with disabilities. Sponsored by BAYADA Home Health Care, the event takes place at the St. Joseph’s University Boathouse on the banks of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, PA.

The regatta is free of charge, open to the public—and lots of fun! Enjoy exciting races, medal ceremonies, music, entertainment, and face painting and crafts for kids throughout the day.

Come support the rowers and bring lawn chairs, sunscreen, and the family. Free soft pretzels and bottled water will be available for spectators.

Hope to see you there!
