Great Steamboat Race

Waterfront Park: Great Lawn 231 E. Witherspoon Street, Louisville

Shepherd Insurance Great Steamboat Race

As one of the original and longest standing traditions of the Kentucky Derby Festival, the Great Steamboat Race has been taking place on the Ohio River since 1963. Ask any local, this event has become a Louisville tradition in the leadup to Derby weekend!

The event pits vessels against each other, including the Belle of Cincinnati, as they compete for bragging rights in this race on the river!
