Riverboat Races



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 Whitecourt Annual Riverboat Races are held during a weekend in August. Head down to the boat launch at Riverboat Park in Whitecourt to get the best view of the boats as they race.  



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 2015.  Other locations worldwide include New Zealand, Mexico and the United States. Professional jet boat racers will travel from across Canada, the United States, Mexico, and even as far as New Zealand to participate in the races.
