The HydroFest boat race is scheduled for June 26-27, 2021, and tickets went on sale this week. 

The passes for the popular tent sites are also on sale. 

The sales are being made through the website or by stopping by the Marshall County Tourism & Sports office upstairs at the Lake Guntersville Chamber of Commerce.

There are new ticket options for this year’s race including a Day Pass, Premium Personal Tent Spaces and free weekend access for active-duty military members. The Day Pass is for those who can’t commit to a full weekend but still want to enjoy the races. It will allow access to either Saturday or Sunday to this year’s event.

Premium Personal Tent Spaces will allow tents up to 15x15 feet and will have an on-water space . If you purchase a tent space, you must bring your own tent. Coolers are allowed, but must be brought in during tent setup on Friday, June 25. 

Pricing on the above options are:

Adult Day Pass - $15

Child Day Pass (ages 6-12) - $5

Children 5 and under - free

Premium Tent Spaces - $75

Corporate ticket blocks are a new item for this year’s event as well. These can only be purchased by visiting the MCTS office or by calling the office at 257-582-7015.

Club Level includes access into a large, private tented area for on-the-water viewing at the start/finish line and free lunch and nonalcoholic beverages. Free transportation to see the boats at the pits any time throughout the two days of racing is also included. The Ultimate Weekend Pass includes admission into the event, free transportation to see the boats at any time throughout the two days of racing, and a commemorative program.
