The 15th Annual Festival: July 29th – August 1st, 2020

The 15th Annual Lake Bemidji Dragon Boat Festival features four days of fun for the entire family. After all, it’s not just about Dragon Boat racing: festival activities include great food, music, kid’s activities, a parade of teams, cultural performances, camaraderie and much more all along the shores of beautiful Lake Bemidji (on Bemidji Avenue/Hwy 197 – to the left of the Paul & Babe statues).

PADDLES UP! RACES ON FRIDAY, JULY 31ST AND SATURDAY, AUGUST 1ST

Dragon Boat racing is fun, fast-paced and engaging for spectators. It’s currently the fastest growing water sport in the nation! Between racers, family, friends, volunteers and spectators, we again anticipate thousands of people at the Lake Bemidji waterfront during the course of the event. Dondelinger’s Sprint Cup will take place the evening of Friday, July 31st and Race day starts at 9:30am on Saturday, August 1st and runs all day.
