About the Dragon Boat Event

Regina Dragon Boat Festival Inc. is a volunteer-run, not for profit organization. Established to foster better understanding, appreciation, and awareness of Asian culture and heritage within our community.

Regina’s festival begins Friday with the Children’s Festival and runs all 3 days of August 25-26-27 from 10am – 6pm each day

Friday evening is the beginning of the RDB Festival dragon boat racing with the 200meter qualifying races.

There are Dragon Boat races all day Saturday from 10:00am – 6:00pm. Teams compete in 48-foot dragon boats in multiple recreation divisions.

Saturday showcases the Island Trade Market featuring vendors with a wide variety of merchandise for sale.  Support local vendors and bring your own shopping bag.

While everyone will  cheer on the paddlers, thousands of others fill Wascana Park to enjoy the food, cultural entertainment, children’s activities, and the Dragon’s Lair Tent.  A licensed beer garden venue offering live entertainment is perfect for getting out of the sun or rain and ending a perfect day.

Dragon Festival Oath

This single paddle represents harmony, friendship and peace among the world’s people. With the symbolic passing of this paddle, we pledge our commitment to the unification of that multi-faceted community with humility, goodwill and dignity.

To harmony, friendship and peace.
