Devils Lake Regatta started in 1933 with an estimated 15,000 visitors and 5,000 cars showing up to the three-day event in Lincoln City.

According to North Lincoln County Historical Museum, activities at the event included foot races, picnics, wienie roasts, golf, carnivals, dancing, logrolling, a parade, and swimming. Boat races were also wildly popular on the 685 acres of serene water.

Turnout for the event increased every summer until the event ended with the start of WWII.

Regatta Park now stands where the above pictures were taken.

Recently, the City of Lincoln City has made efforts to remove a deed restriction from the 1930s to bring people back to Devils Lake and Regatta park to once again utilize the hidden gem for public events. Due to the COVID-19, work on this issue has been brought to a standstill, but city officials said it would not take long once the pandemic is behind us to realize the lake’s full potential.
