  • The Evansville Museum, 411 SE Riverside Drive, Evansville
  • Evansville Hydrofest gates will have them for sale Sept. 1 - 3

The cost of the wristbands are $10 for all 3 days of hydroplane racing.  Children 12 and under are free.

This year down on the Ohio Riverfront in downtown Evansville, the public will be invited to bring lawn chairs and limited size coolers will be permitted.  No glass allowed.  Bleacher seating will be available and pit tours during the 3 days of the event.
