Featured Races

Friday, June 22 – 6:00pm

We kick off the Concord Pacific Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival with All Access Friday.

All Access Friday features the Survivor Showdown and the Barrier Free Canada Cup. 

The Survivor Showdown – Abreast In A Boat vs. Butts In A Boat – is a challenge between prostate and breast cancer survivors.  Cheer on these two amazing teams as they race and help build awareness for their causes.

We are pleased to host the Barrier Free Canada Cup.  Eight teams that make it their mission to engage people facing different challenges race down the historic False Creek race course for glory, and to raise funds for their causes. Watch the Barrier Free Canada Cup from the comfort of the Concord Pacific Fan Zone located at the finish line.

The race isn’t just on the water, but on land as well. Concord Pacific will match pledges for the team that raises the most for their charity up to $5,000.

More info coming shortly…
