Welcome to home of the Seattle Dragon Boat Festival.  Thank you for your patience as we continue to work to bring dragon boat racing to the Emerald City again.  We are busy looking at other venues within the city limits, but we know that South Lake Union, in the heart of the city, is where our event belongs.  The main issue is that our festival is not allowed to be scheduled during the busy summer months due to heavy seaplane and boat traffic.  We are aligned with the City erring on the side of caution, and are looking at ways we could schedule this event in June or September.

Please continue to check in for updates or like us on Facebook.  We promise, when we return, we will be as large and fun as we were before with a more sustainable future for many festivals to come.

In the meantime, come join us at the Olympia Dragon Boat Festival, April 29, 2023, at Port Plaza.

Thank you and Paddles up!
