Description

Featuring: Dragon Land is a whopping 3,000+ square foot pavillion of activities dedicated to putting happy smiles on all your children's faces! Festival open 10AM - 5PM Saturday & Sunday. Racing runs 8AM - 5PM Saturday & Sunday.

Come join us 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. This year, we have over 120 dragon boat teams and 3,500 dragon boat paddlers racing our 500 and 300 meter course.

Dragon boat teams range from novice to competitive skill level. Novice teams represent local Bay Area corporations, public agencies, and non-profit community.

Recreational and competitive teams practice year-round and hail from all over the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands. This year's championship race is going to be one of the fiercest battles for victory to date!

In addition to the exciting dragon boat racing, the Festival features many fun cultural activities: an entertainment stage with live dance and music performances, the Dragon Land children's activity pavilion, and a variety of food, arts & crafts, and other vendors.
