Join Kaiser Permanente for a weekend of world class dragon boat racing, spectacular cultural performances, and fun-filled activities for the whole family at the largest competitive dragon boat festival in the United States!
Going into their 12th year, they will have over 100 dragon boat teams and 2,500 dragon boat paddlers from across North America racing their 500-meter course. Dragon boat teams range from novice to competitive. Novice teams represent local Bay Area corporations, public agencies, and non-profit community organizations. Recreational and competitive teams practice year round and are coming from all over the United States and Canada to battle it out in the championships.
