Relighting of Boathouse Row

March 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The iconic Boathouse Row has been dark for a year getting a major glow-up. Now, the much-anticipated official Boathouse Row Relighting Ceremony is happening on Thursday, March 7 from 6–8 pm!

Watch the Relighting and join the festivities at the Fairmount Fish Ladder, directly across the river from Boathouse Row! Bring your own chair or blanket, enjoy music and food trucks, and join city officials, leaders from Fairmount Park Conservancy and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and others for official remarks and a short light show.

Stay tuned for more updates! The best way to stay in the know is to register for the Relighting Ceremony and follow our new Instagram account at @boathouserowlights.
