Philadelphia International Dragon Boat Festival

August 7, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Dragon Boat racing is the world’s fastest growing water sport, and it features teams of twenty paddlers each rowing in unison to move these magnificent boats inspired by ancient Chinese designs. The Philadelphia International Dragon Boat Festival features both men and women racers of all ages and abilities. This is an international contest that’s great for those who want to participate or look on. Between the boats, each team’s drummer playing a beat to keep the pace, and the crowds, this event offers a lot of entertainment every year.
