Carlan Cup Western Canada Zone Jetboat Races
August 12 @ 8:00 am - August 13 @ 5:00 pm
Come experience the sound of thunder racing across our rivers during the Annual Jet Boat Races. Residents and tourists pack the shores each year to witness the excitement of the weekend event. The 2017 Western Canada Zone Jet Boat Races are scheduled for August 12 and 13.
Head down to the boat launch at Riverboat Park in Whitecourt to get the best view of the boats as they race. Or, head down on Friday night and have a chance to see the boats up close and talk to the drivers at the Friday night Show & Shine.
Whitecourt is proud to be one of only four locations worldwide to host the World Jet Boat Races. Whitecourt plays host every four years – so plan to visit for the World competition in 2019. Other locations worldwide include New Zealand, Mexico and the United States.
