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.

2020 marks the Arizona Dragon Boat Association‘s 17th annual dragon boat festival. Join the Arizona Dragon Boat Association on March 28 & 29 for two days of exciting dragon boat competition with teams from all over the United States and beyond.
