About the Canadian International Dragon Boat Festival Society

Community, culture, and competition, all in one boat. The Canadian International Dragon Boat Festival Society (Dragon Boat BC) supports accessible low or no cost community programming that allows everyone, regardless of ability or resources the chance to be active through our races and year round activity at Dragon Zone Paddling Club. In 2018, we celebrate our 30th anniversary, and look to the future as we aim to continue Vancouver’s historical connection to the sport of dragon boat racing, and our region’s continued commitment to diversity, inclusion, and culture. The Society is a registered British Columbia non-profit society incorporated in 1989 (#S-24628).
