Corporations and Vendors are invited to join us at the San Diego Crew Classic to cheer on competitors! Tent Row is the place to be during the regatta—you’ll have easy access to the course and can enjoy hospitality and camaraderie.
Near Tent Row you’ll also find the food court, merchandise tents, the Trade Show, a beer garden, and a Jumbotron showing the races from start to finish. The on-site concessionaire can deliver simple or elaborate fare to meet the organizations’ needs. See the Vendor Locations Map here
Things to Know:
Collegiate Finals early on Sunday: The finals of the Collegiate Copley Cup (men) and Jessop/Whittier Cup (women) will be raced before 9:30 a.m. Be sure to tell your guests. Check back on this website for schedule with lane draws approximately two weeks in advance.
Alcohol: The City of San Diego has a ban on alcohol at city beaches and adjacent parks. We have a licensed beer garden, the Lane Zero Beer Garden is located near the finish line.
IMPORTANT RESTRICTION: The selling of food and beverages to the public by those in Tent Row is NOT covered under our event permit. Any organizations wishing to do this must submit forms and secure permits from the County of San Diego and be included in our concession program.
Firm enforcement of city laws by the City of San Diego is anticipated. Organizations may sell, in advance, tickets for admission to the groups’ party.

Banners: Secure custody of school banners and other belongings is the responsibility of the group organizers. The San Diego Crew Classic cannot be held accountable for any losses. Your banner must remain within your area. Please do not hang it from adjacent fences. Remember that City rules prohibit amplifiers and balloons in the park – try banners instead!
Sponsors: You may be arranging for your tent and hospitality expenses to be paid for by sponsors, who may wish for you to display their banner or sign in your alumni area. Approval is required in advance. Please contact the San Diego Crew Classic Development Office at 619-225-0305.
