The Regatta Day Festival and Regatta viewing at Erickson Park have no tickets or admission costs. Seating and parking are first-come, first-serve. If you are able to park at our off-site parking at Ocean State Job Lot in Gales Ferry and take our complimentary shuttle, please do so to allow those with special needs and disabilities to utilize our on-site parking.
Can I bring my dog?
Pets are definitely welcome! Pets and service animals must be leashed at all times, and pets are not allowed on the shuttle from Ocean State Job Lot to the Festival. Due to anticipated attendance, please do not bring your pets if they are uncomfortable around children or large crowds. Please bring dog waste bags; you are responsible for cleaning up after your pup.
