Richmond International Dragon Boat Festival
Artboard 2

10:00 AM @ Rocketts Landing

Saturday, August 3, 10 AM

Rocketts Landing

Thanks to the city’s central location on the American East Coast, teams from across the eastern seaboard and beyond travel to join local crews for a fun day of dragon boat festivities on and off the water. Many out-of-towners extend their stay to discover the attractions that made Richmond one of Frommers’ Top Destinations for 2014, such as the Civil War Trails, white water rafting, local craft breweries, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, 17th Street Farmers' Market, and the Edgar Allen Poe Museum.

Races take place on a 500m course with events for Mixed, Women's, Open, Breast Cancer Paddlers, All Cancer Paddlers and Paradragons teams. Local crews battle it out for the coveted Community Championship trophy.
