Dragon Boat Festival

When:  September 10th and 11th, 2017

Our festival, held over two days on the second weekend in September, is entering its 16th year.  The racing happens on 11 km long Skaha Lake in beautiful, sunny, Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. The event also features a beverage garden, a wide range of vendors, lots of great food and over 2,500 athletes.

The Penticton Dragon Boat Festival began in 2000. Originally held on Okanagan Lake, the festival has now found its home at the beautiful Skaha Lake Park, which offers the perfect race site for racers and spectators alike. Teams love the fleet of Millennium boats and the warm fresh water sandy beach for loading and unloading. With plenty of room for the team village, lots of sun and shade, plus a wide array of food and merchandise vendors and a happening beer garden, we think you will find the Penticton Dragon Boat Festival ranks as one of the best.
