Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers Hydrofest

Date: August 21 - 23, 2020


As a tradition that spans over 100 years in Detroit, Hydroplane racing and its story is an important part of our region’s history. That history has helped birth a vibrant marine and boating industry locally and throughout the Great Lakes. Many of the accomplished hydroplane drivers today and in years past call Detroit or a neighboring area home. Most of all, the hydroplane races bring our community to the waterfront every summer to not only enjoy racing, but also the beauty of our special international waterfront. You are helping to tell that story.

In addition to the race itself, we will make announcements throughout the year to showcase a behind the scenes look at the industry, racing teams and the intense work done throughout the winter to get the hydroplanes ready for race season.

The 2020 event will showcase some exciting new features:

  • Friday, August 21 will be a night to celebrate both sides of the river with food, music and open access to the beautiful Detroit waterfront.
  • Saturday, August 22 is Family Day with plenty of racing and activities for the whole family.
  • Sunday, August 23 is President’s Cup Day – the grand finale, as drivers race toward their final heats and determine who will be the winner.
