Another year of great family entertainment has come and gone. The additions make in recent years have shown us that our additions, are right on track and we are giving the public what they want!    Between the addition of headlining bands, the excitement of the boat racing and the Unlimited Hydroplanes: this is what helps bring 30,000+ spectators to the shores of Lake Sammamish State Park.  Our Regatta, the 4th the largest on the West Coast, brings together everything from the Vintage Unlimited Hydros in exhibition to a full line of Inboard hydroplanes and vintage restored hydros sharing the waters of Lake Sammamish from 10am – 6pm!!  It was the excitement of having the Unlimiteds  and the Grand Prix Hydros and the increased activity on the shore that continues to bring  excitement to this early summer festival!  We invite you to take this opportunity to benefit from the media and public exposure of sponsoring this years Tastin’ n Racin’… plus, while having a great time!!

2012 we will be celebrating our 16th anniversary!!  We continually work on our show to make it the biggest and best.  2012 will continue with headlining bands on the Main Stage, the Hot Boat a show on Saturday, the Classic Car show on Sunday and of course the vintage Unlimited Hydroplanes and 8 other classes of exciting race boat!  That means, there are two days full of non-stop action and something for everyone!  So, don’t miss your chance to jump on board and take this opportunity to support this exciting Eastside tradition and enjoy the publicity and media attention a festival of this magnitude receives, for a price that is very reasonable. Tastin’ n Racin’ offers many levels of sponsorship opportunities for this great and growing festival. Everything from headlining title sponsor, sponsorship of an area (ie: Main Stage, Family Area) and associate sponsors. We even offer Class Sponsorship for the various classes racing in the Regatta.   We are willing to tailor make a sponsorship that will fit your marketing needs and budget.

Sponsored and promoted by KZOK, the Seattle Times and associated papers to name a few (see media page), our promotion package is extensive. Examples of some of the media press are on the Media page of this site.  If you live in the Seattle/Eastside area, you know about Tastin’ n Racin’. Over the years, we have enjoyed and endured a wide range of weather, everything from a perfect 75 degree sunshine, or rain and hail, and even 92 degree heat and sunshine. The variety of weather does not seem to shut us down, the crowds still come no matter what the weather is doing outside.
