Culture, community and competition, all in one boat.
Our non-profit society reflects diversity through festivals that celebrate the arts and dragon boat racing. We have expanded our mission by supporting our activities with year round programs such as the Dragon Zone Paddling Club and the Community Boathouse.
The Canadian International Dragon Boat Festival is a registered British Columbia Non-Profit Society. Incorporated in 1989, our society number is S-24628.
Recognized as North America’s biggest and best, the annual Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival is a true celebration of our diverse and beautiful city, attracting over 100,000 people and close to 200 dragon boat teams from across the Lower Mainland and around the globe.
