Tulsa's Great Raft Race
2100 S Jackson Ave
Head out to Tulsa’s Great Raft Race for a thrilling Labor Day on the Arkansas River. Participants can race down the river in one of three types of vessels: purchased watercraft like kayaks, canoes or inflatables, small to mid-sized homebuilt rafts or mid- to large-sized homebuilt rafts.
Racers can also choose between two categories: the Pokie Okie, which is just for recreation and is untimed, or the competitive, timed category. Trophies will be given for the fastest purchased raft and the fastest homebuilt rafts. One team will walk away with the coveted award for the most creative theme and costumes among the homebuilt rafts.
