Cancelled for 2020

We were SO looking forward to laughing and socializing with you on April 18th! Too bad both are arrestable offenses now! Ah, life in the time of Covid-19. We hope to try this again, but that won't be for a while. So if you can, please consider making the $ you paid for a ticket a donation to PVRC. If you prefer a refund, we will gladly provide that - please email with your name, ticket number, and how you'd like to be refunded.

Bike Week


PVRC will be hosting bike related events during Bay State Bike Week. Bay State Bike Week is an annual celebration of human-powered, two-wheeled transportation. It is fitting that Massachusetts would be the only state in the nation with a truly statewide bike week, given our long history of biking.

The Springfield Dragon Boat Festival is your chance to race in a dragon boat, even if you have never paddled before. Our Dragon Boat Challenge is the perfect opportunity for any group looking for a new high-energy team building experience. Our Asian-themed festival also includes races by premier dragon boat club teams, entertainment, music, food and vendors, as well as a Rose Ceremony to commemorate those loved ones we have lost to cancer, and particularly breast cancer. Come for the racing, stay for the day.

Held each September at North Riverfront Park, the annual Rockrimmon Regatta has grown over the years and now attracts rowers and spectators from all over the Northeast. Join this fun stake race to warm up for your fall rowing and win the most delicious prizes around! Register and more details at Regatta Central. View past race results at
