Every year the Hampton Cup Regatta is held at Fort Monroe. The bridge from Mercury Boulevard to the Fort is closed down for spectators and vendors. Visitors attending can roam the bridge or pick a spot on the Fort under some shade for great views of the races.
Fort Monroe has many historic houses and buildings on the premises as well as the Casemate Museum that is open to visitors. The fort also offers great vantage points for the race, and even a little extra shade for those who want it. You can also view and enter the pit area (not the hot pits) with an arm band purchased at our booth near the main entrance.
