Dragon Boat Racing is in Jacksonville, Florida!

On September, 27th 2014, Jacksonville will host the second annual Jacksonville Dragon Boat Festival at the Jacksonville Landing on the St. John’s River in downtown Jacksonville. The Jacksonville Landing is a spectacular, spectator-friendly venue, with an array of restaurants and shops. This all-day event will feature teams from Florida, South Carolina, and more.  We hope to have at least 50 teams and over 1000 paddlers participate, as well as thousands of spectators come to watch the fascination of sleek, 42-foot long dragon boats gliding through the water, powered only by paddlers!   

Dragon Boating is the fastest growing water sport in the world, with teams racing in more than 80 countries. Jacksonville added their festival in 2013 to a host of dragon boat festivals held throughout the world, bringing people together for a day of racing, fellowship, team-building, and fun. Organized by Pan Am Dragon Boat Association, In the Pink, and Charlene Shirk Productions, the inaugural Jacksonville Dragon Boat Festival was an overwhelming success!

This community event gives everyone an opportunity to view 360-meter races with local community teams and organizations, corporate teams, and competitive teams.  The event will begin with an opening ceremony that includes the traditional “Dragon eye-dotting” ritual that  signifies the awakening of the dragons to begin the festival, as well as dancing and performances from the Asian culture.
