The Springfield Dragon Boat Festival is your chance to race in a dragon boat, even if you have never paddled before. Our Dragon Boat Challenge is the perfect opportunity for any group looking for a new high-energy team building experience. Our Asian-themed festival also includes races by premier dragon boat club teams, entertainment, music, food and vendors, as well as a Rose Ceremony to commemorate those loved ones we have lost to cancer, and particularly breast cancer. Come for the racing, stay for the day.

Wishing everyone a safe schoolyear. See you in 2021.
