  • Folklore and Tradition

A traditional sporting event: this regatta consists, indeed, of a fleet of floating bathtubs decorated in unusual and original ways. The event takes place every year in Dinant, on August 15th. 

The international regatta is one-kilometre long and runs along the river Meuse. It attracts more than 25,000 people every year, who watch it from the banks of the river and from the Charles de Gaulle Bridge.

The key word: originality

The bathtubs must be propelled by human force only - think paddling, adding to the entertainment. The event is completely free, whether for spectators or for participants.

The latter are rewarded for the beauty and originality of their tub, the way they put the news and the town of Dinant forward.

Its aim is to feed your imagination...but any good ideas are welcomed!
