Moraine State Park Regatta
Time & Location
About the Event
The Moraine State Park Regatta will celebrate the park’s history after 2020’s 50th anniversary events were cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. It will instead commemorate 50+1 years for one of the best parks in Western Pennsylvania.
The park was founded in 1970 after the damming of Muddy Creek and reclamation of mining and industry land in the area. The newly formed Lake Arthur and surrounding lands were protected by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to create Moraine State Park. Since then, the park has provided millions of visitors with access to nature and recreational activities.
The Regatta’s 50+1 anniversary celebrations are sponsored by Diehl Toyota. Their contribution allows the Regatta to include many of the activities that show off the park’s natural and historic value. Diehl’s strong ties to local businesses and work in the community are greatly appreciated, especially as the region continues to recover in 2021 and beyond.
The inaugural Moraine 5k Race and newly relocated Pittsburgh Paddlesports Race will coincide with the 50+1 celebrations. Additional events and activities that celebrate the park and its ongoing development will continue to be announced as the Regatta approaches.
The purpose of the Moraine State Park Regatta is to promote Moraine State Park and outdoor recreational activities. Located on the south shore of Lake Arthur, and formerly called Regatta at Lake Arthur, the event is free to attend.
