In 2009 a new team was formed to re-launch the Raft Race with the aim of being a family fundraising event for the whole Community. Ten years on the Raft Race has grown to be a premier event in North Somerset’s Events Calendar.
With over 20 rafts competing annually, a popular children’s ‘edible regatta’, a large selection of village fete stalls and live music, our event has become an unmissable family day out. It is held at Portishead Lake Grounds, a beautiful venue for the thousands of visitors to enjoy each year. Collectively we raise over £10k for charities and community groups locally. It is free to attend and all organised by an animated group of volunteers.
Come and join us at the raft race and have a splashing time for the whole family! You can even enter a raft team, have a stall and raise money for charity, or simply come along and enjoy all the festivities. Take a look at what we do by clicking on the tabs at the top of this page!
