America’s Cup Boater’s Bash

Cheer on the America's Cup from the race's "in-field"


Get up close and somewhat personal during the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series from the water at the Boater’s Bash. Taking place June 11 and 12 from noon to 6 p.m. each day, this massive party set up on a temporary barge allows boaters to dock, get off and get down on the 100-foot by 26-foot barge complete with DJ Rock City, drinks and an on-water LED jumbotron. You’ll either need an America’s Cup ticket or pay $50 to dock and get onto the barge.
