About the Grosse Pointe Farms Boat Club

For nearly sixty years, members of The Grosse Pointe Farms Boat Club have worked to enhance the lives of residents in the community of Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan. To that end, our members partner with the Parks and Recreation department to provide meaningful and memorable community events throughout the year. Membership in GPFBC is open to any resident of Grosse Pointe Farms and we are proud to boast over 150 families of all ages and stages…there’s always room for YOU in Grosse Pointe Farms Boat Club!

Our biggest event coincides with the city’s annual fireworks display—Regatta. This weekend-long celebration of Independence Day brings families, neighbors, and friends together at our beautiful Pier Park.
