2015 Potomac River Festival


1st Annual Potomac River Festival 

At Quantico


Have a day of fun along the Potomac River!

Step aboard a police boat, watch a sailing regatta, learn about boating resources in the area, see demos and classes on boating safety equipment, compete in a Kayak race courtesy of Team River Runners to support our Wounded Warriors, enjoy good music, eat delicious food and browse information booths, tour boats in the marina, and maybe take a sunset ride aboard a beautiful boat from Quantico Yacht Club.

What’s it all about? Quantico Yacht Club (QYC) promotes safe, fun, family activities on and near the water at its annual Potomac River festival. This year, we team with the Marine Corps Base Quantico Community Services, the Town of Quantico, and Team River Runners to run the event from 12-5pm, with both early and later activities planned, and it will be bigger than ever!

If you want to crew on one of the racing boats, simply be at the Flag Raising and we’ll make it happen. If you just want to sit back and watch the race, bring a chair, a cooler and enjoy!

We will have boating/recreational equipment vendors on site including like BACKYARD BOATS, PRINCE WILLIAM MARINE, REI RECREATIONAL EQUIPMENT, and TOWBOAT US, and an onsite raffle for WEST MARINE donated items.

We look forward to seeing you at Quantico for the Potomac River Festival!
