JOIN US FOR A FAVORITE SUMMERTIME TRADITION!
The 13th 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. 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.
PRACTICE ALL SUMMER LONG!
Interested in getting some more practice time in? The First City Dragon Boat Club practices May – September and is open to anyone. The club now has TWO dragon boats and meets from 6-8pm on Tuesdays at the BSU/OPC located in Diamond Point Park.
This event is co-founded by the Bemidji Rotary Club and the Bemidji Area Chamber of Commerce with the backing of some pretty amazing sponsors. including our Title Sponsor: Paul Bunyan Communications. All funds raised go right back into our community through their charitable giving.
