Description

The Sarasota Dragon Boat Festival comes to Nathan Benderson Park, Sarasota, Florida on Saturday, May 11, 2019, 9am-4:30pm. This event brings together culture, sport and international flavors that blend a 2,500-year-old tradition with the fun and excitement of an outdoor festival.

Twenty paddlers move in unison, combining strength and teamwork in a boat whose elaborate design originates from ancient China. Social groups and businesses alike embrace the sport because it builds camaraderie, forms connections and promotes healthy lifestyles.

Admission to this family-friendly event is free; races will begin at approximately 8:30am and will continue throughout the day. Festival grounds will offer a variety of activities for all participants and spectators. Experience the Asian Cultural performances, wander through the Health & Wellness Village featuring exciting products and services to assist in leading a healthy lifestyle. Grab a bite from one of our Food Trucks, enjoy a cold beverage in the Beer Garden, or shop in the Marketplace.

New teams and individuals are welcome! Invite friends, family, colleagues - form a group of up to 21 people and sign-up a team today. If you or a couple of friends are interested, there is a pay per seat option available, contact us at info@gwndragonboat.com to join.
