Event Details

Get ready for the 8th Annual Louisiana Dragon Boat Races™ on May 5, 2018!
The Alexandria Museum Art is proud to bring the Louisiana Dragon Boat Races™ back to Rapides Parish. This exciting family event makes for a  great day of good, spirited racing, and a great time on
and off the water!  



Want to be on the water?
Dragon Boat teams consist of 20 paddlers (a minimum of eight (8) must be female) and one drummer. The helmsman will be provided. There will be a practice session for each team during the week preceding the event. To register as a competing team, choose the "Boat Team" Ticket, and complete the registration and payment forms at checkout. 

Have a team, but that would rather stay dry?
If you are a company or organization who wants to participate in the fun, but not on the water, you can register as a Tailgating Team, and secure a private spot in the team tent area for your associates to be close to the action, then register as a "Tailgating-at-a-Tent-Site Team" by selecting the "Tailgaiting Ticket" option, and complete the registration and payment forms at checkout. 



Due to overwhelming response in the past and limited space on the river, the Museum will accept boat teams on a first come, first serve basis. To secure your spot, complete the forms below.

Alexandria Museum of Art


The Alexandria Museum of Art has promoted understanding and appreciation of art through three decades of exhibitions and educational outreach programs. The mission of the Alexandria Museum of Art is to preserve, exhibit, and promote visual art throughout Central Louisiana in a manner that contributes to the quality of life. To accomplish this, we educate, in order to advance the public’s knowledge of and appreciation for the value of art as a source of beauty, inspiration, information, and expression. The vision of the Alexandria Museum of Art is to be the premier arts center of Central Louisiana, providing quality programming, exhibitions, and events, as well as outreach programs, taking a collaborative approach to meet the educational and cultural needs of our community.

The Alexandria Museum of Art opened in October 1977 as the public organ of the Central Louisiana Art Association, which had existed since 1938. Since its inception, the Museum was housed in a complex dominated by the historic Rapides Bank Building, c. 1898, a National Register structure. In October 1995, the Museum Trustees undertook a new campaign titled “Jewel on the Red.” The goal of the campaign was to raise $6 million dollars for the construction of a new museum and a renovation of the historic bank and $2 million dollars for an operating endowment. In 1998, the Alexandria Museum of Art expanded and constructed its grand foyer and offices as an annex to the Rapides Bank Building. In 1999, the Alexandria Museum of Art was honored at an Outstanding Arts Organization in the Governor’s Arts Awards. In 2006, the Museum merged into a new entity, the Alexandria Museum Association, owned by the Louisiana State University at Alexandria (LSUA) Foundation. This action leveraged the assets and resources of both institutions in order to provide the most benefit to the community. This new LSUA Foundation entity entered into a collaborative agreement with the LSU Board of Supervisors (LSUA) to continue operations of the Alexandria Museum of Art.

The Alexandria Museum of Art entices visitors of diverse tastes with rotating exhibitions of art from our permanent collection, traveling exhibitions from around the world, and exceptional contemporary artists. Educational and community programs are implemented to compliment exhibitions. In an effort to become self-sufficient and sustainable, the Alexandria Museum of Art endeavors to establish programming that is collaborative in nature, beneficial to the community, and advances our mission.

The Alexandria Museum of Art also serves as a downtown campus for LSUA classes. It is host to multidisciplinary community events, including concerts, lectures, yoga classes, Second Saturday Markets, and Museum Afterhours. These events support all art forms – film, literature, poetry, songwriting, and visual arts. The community-centered approach adopted by the Museum proceeds from its mission; the Alexandria Museum of Art desires to be the model of a learning and enrichment facility that reflects and exhibits the essence of the community and region that created it.
