Bay City River Roar Inc. presented by Maier & Associates and Graff Chevrolet
26th Anniversary of Professional Powerboat Racing along the Saginaw River. A 1-mile course and 700 feet wide with seawalls makes this the toughest course along the circuit. Great family fun, carnival, evening concerts, and race with the pro's, Micro-Brew tent and much much more. As a non-profit 501c3, we have raised over 1Million dollars for Mid-Michigan charities and continue to grow stronger each year. Our Board of Directors are all volunteers as well as the hundreds of volunteers that help this great event all weekend long.
