      2nd Colorado Springs International Dragon Boat Festival

      The Colorado Springs International Dragon Boat Festival returns to Prospect Lake at Memorial Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado on Saturday, August 26th, 2017. This event brings together culture, sport and international flavors that blend a 2,500-year-old tradition with the fun and excitement of an outdoor festival.

      Twenty paddlers move in unison, combining strength and teamwork in a boat whose elaborate design originates from ancient China. Social groups and businesses alike embrace the sport because it builds camaraderie, forms connections and promotes healthy lifestyles.

      Admission to the event is free; races will begin at 9:00am and will continue throughout the day. Festival grounds will offer a variety of activities for all participants and spectators. There will be Asian Cultural Performances throughout the day and the Health & Wellness Village features exciting products and services to assist in leading a healthy lifestyle. Grab a bite from one of our Food Trucks, enjoy watching the races in the Beer Garden, or shop in the Marketplace. Families can bring their children to enjoy games and activities in the interactive Kids Zone. The event will provide the opportunity for local charities to participate and use the event to raise funds and awareness for their organization.

      New teams and individuals are welcome! Invite friends, family, colleagues - form a group of 17-21 people and sign-up a team today. If you or a couple of friends are interested, there is a pay per seat option available, contact us at info@gwndragonboat.com to join.
