The cardboard boat race is a fun family team event where you build your own boat from cardboard and duct tape and set sail in a race around the marina.

When: June 8, 2024 @ 12pm

Each team will be supplied with three large cardboard boxes and two rolls of duct tape. We encourage you to build the boat prior to race day. Each member of your team will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win a blow-up paddleboard!

Vendor Information

This event is intended as an educational opportunity, not for retail vendors. However, we do usually welcome a few food trucks to supply food to attendees. If you are interested, please contact us!

One of the biggest partners for the Utah Lake Festival is the June Sucker Recovery Implementation Program (JSRIP). This event largely focuses on educating the public on the efforts made by this program as described below:

“The June Sucker Recovery Implementation Program is a multi-agency cooperative effort designed to coordinate and implement recovery actions for June sucker. The program also recognizes the need for continued operation of existing water projects and development to meet future water needs. The program takes an adaptive management approach wherein biological information is gathered, reviewed and incorporated into the program on a continual basis. The program works to balance and accommodate water resource needs of the human population with June sucker recovery efforts. While the priority is on June sucker, the program also provides a mechanism to promote the recovery of other federally listed species, and prevent the need for further listings in the Utah Lake Drainage Basin.” – JuneSuckerRecovery.org
