The 2012 World Rowing Championships were held at Plovdiv, Bulgaria between August 15 – August 19 in conjunction with the World Junior Rowing Championships The annual week long rowing regatta is organized by FISA (the International Rowing Federation), and held at the end of the northern hemisphere summer.

Because the 2012 Summer Olympics will be the major rowing event in 2012, the programme will be limited to non-Olympic events, and the World Rowing Junior Championships will be held at the same time.
