The Housatonic River Flotilla

The Housatonic River Flotilla will be held Sunday, September 10, 2017 at Bartholomew’s Cobble, Sheffield, MA.

This event is more of a boat parade than a race where community groups and businesses will float vessels of their own design and decoration in celebration of the Housatonic River, and it’s all part of a festival style afternoon gathering on the Housatonic shore at Bartholomew’s Cobble. The event will include music, food and river viewing.



The event day schedule is as follows:

11:30 am  Event begins

12:00-2:00 pm  Berkshire Bateria performs

1:00 pm  Flotilla (boat parade) begins.

The event is meant to bring interest in and appreciation for the Housatonic River.

Organizers recommend that visitors bring lawn chairs or blankets.

Admission is $5 per person.
