HELP RESTORE THE BOATHOUSE!

  

Raise your glass to Belle Isle’s Iconic “Boathouse” since 1902! Experience an afternoon of sipping brews on the river enjoying the spacious lawn and acoustic live music under the historic Band Shell overlooking the Detroit River. Proceeds benefit the efforts to restore a Detroit gem.

Currently the centrury old Boathouse is closed to visitors for architectural evaluation for safety and longevity.  Because of this, the 5th annual Boathouse Beer Fest will be hosted on the lawn overlooking the bandshell, Detroit River & Belle Isle Bridge for a beautiful fall day with a tented pavilion and live music and HUGE selection of fall seasonal beers!

 The Detroit Boat Club Crew was founded in 1839, which makes making us one of the oldest crews in existence! With 119 years of constant use and exposure to the weather the Boathouse has seen better days. Significant repair is now needed, and Friends of Detroit Rowing (a 401c3 non-profit) is leading the charge to bring
this Detroit gem back to its glory.  The crew club is working hard to raise money and volunteer time to help bring this Detroit Gem back to it’s glory. We hope you will join us in the effort!

The Belle Isle Boathouse is located at E Picnic Way, Detroit, MI 48207
