The Miami Dragon Boat Festival is the perfect opportunity to form local groups to try dragon boating, alongside some of the best teams in Florida.
GWN is proud of our joint partnership with Save Our Sisters Miami. A portion of the proceeds from the event will help support their program as they introduce breast cancer survivors to the sport.
Staged at Haulover Park, the Festival promises a memorable day of racing and fun. All teams will enjoy 500m racing.
Festival grounds offer something for everyone. Spectators can take in the action and follow the excitement of racing while learning about the sport of dragon boat. Another point of interest is the Health and Wellness Village, where participants and spectators can receive products and services to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. Families are invited to bring their children to come to spend time at the races and enjoy the outdoors.
Call 1 (416) 962-8899 or email [email protected] to request material in accessible format, information on access for persons with disabilities, or a sign language interpreter (7 days in advance).
