Regattafest Announces Major Event Sponsors

NEW MARTINSVILLE — The 2018 RegattaFest, scheduled for Sept. 28-30 at the Fireman’s Park on RegattaFest Way, in downtown New Martinsville, announces tts first group of major sponsors.

Major community partners are the Wetzel County Commission, Wetzel County Convention & Visitor’s Bureau, State of West Virginia Fairs & Festivals, EQT Production Company, Tug Hill Operating, Dominion Resources, Covestro, Merco Marine, and the New Martinsville Holiday Inn Express.

The New Martinsville Area RegattaFest Committee expressed its appreciation to these invaluable sponsors. Their contributions allow the event to occur. It is the support of the regional and local business community that provides the foundation for the annual event. Without sponsors, friends of RegattaFest, and volunteers, RegattaFest could not entertain visitors with three days of fast, free family fun.

RegattaFest, in its seventh year, includes nationally sanctioned — by APBA – American Power Boat Association — powerboat racing both Saturday and Sunday afternoons, plus internationally sanctioned –(APBA and UIM – Union Internationale Motonautique — quarter-mile straightaway, speed, record runs (Friday). A full complement of additional activities is planned for the weekend including the popular inflatables, the Kid Zone with interactive games, and new this year, “Get Fit Kids.”

Also on the schedule for the RegattaFest weekend is a live music concert on Saturday night, DJ Spike Riel on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons, a car show (Saturday), as well as a great mix of food concessions and vendor displays.

The RegattaFest spectator area is the downtown Fireman’s Park on RegattaFest Way along the banks of the Ohio River in New Martinsville, West Virginia. Please remember to bring lawn chairs so that you can easily relax and enjoy the activities.
