The weekend of racing on the South’s fastest water will open Friday, June 28 with testing and qualifying. Competitive racing will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 29-30.

In partnership with the City of Guntersville, HydroFest will include two evening concerts this year. On Friday, Grammy-Award winning artist Zach Williams will perform, and Saturday night’s concert will be a 70’s reunion when two of the biggest music bands of the era, Orleans and Firefall, take the stage. Concerts are included in the admission price and will be located inside the event venue on Sunset Drive.

To keep cool during the June heat and to have a designated space for family and friends to gather, personal tent spaces will be available for $50. This includes a 15’ X 15’ area inside the event venue where guests can set up their tents/chairs and leave them through the weekend. There are limited tent spaces left so grab yours today.
