Arizona Dragon Boat Festival at Tempe Town Lake

Arizona Dragon Boat Festival

March 30, 2019 - March 31, 2019

Who would have thought that dragon boat racing, with its roots in southern China as an ancient folk ritual for the past 2,000 years, would find its way to a modern, man-made lake in the middle of the Arizona desert? Since emerging in modern times as an international sport event in Hong Kong in 1976, dragon boat racing has spread throughout the world.

2019 marks the Arizona Dragon Boat Association‘s 16th annual dragon boat festival. Join the Arizona Dragon Boat Association on March 30 & 31 for two days of exciting dragon boat competition with teams from all over the United States and beyond.
