About Mayor’s Cup Festival & Regatta.

Hosted by Sunrise Rotary and the City of Plattsburgh, the Mayor's Cup Regatta & Festival (July 7-10, 2016) is Plattsburgh's most time-honored and highly anticipated summer tradition on Lake Champlain. Now in its 39th year, the four-day celebration includes the Boat Parade of Lights, the Regatta, Post-Race BBQ and Award's Ceremony, as well as Live Music, Family Arts & Kid's Activities, a spectacular Fireworks display and so much more! The Mayor's Cup event is a 100% community-funded event with support coming from many generous local businesses and organizations.


Proceeds from the sales of Mayor’s Cup t-shirts help Plattsburgh Sunrise Rotary with community-based projects, such as the Sunrise Rotary Pavilion at Wilcox Dock, and the Sunrise Rotary Gazebo at the Samuel D. Champlain monument. In fact, Sunrise Rotary raised over $25,000 for the universally accessible Max Moore Memorial Treehouse on the Saranac River Trail in Plattsburgh.
