About this event

Greetings Dragon Boat Teams and Fans!

The 8th annual Springfield Dragon Boat Festival is coming! The festival is one day of fun, food, Asian-themed entertainment, vendors, community support, and competition at Springfield’s North Riverfront Park. This family-friendly day features races between dragon boats (20-person canoes with dragon heads and tails) on the Connecticut River starting at 8 am. You can watch the racing or compete by organizing a team of your own! Spectators attend for free. Please consider walking or riding your bike - we are right on the Connecticut Riverwalk and Bikeway.

Team registration is now open. The competition is open to anyone who forms a 16- to 20-person team (every team must include 8 women) and pays the entry fee which supports the Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club, a Springfield non-profit organization. If you are interested in trying dragon boating or forming a Dragon Boat team but still have questions, use the contact button at the bottom of the page. We'd love to hear from you!

A few important details:

  • This site is for CLUB and CHALLENGE (aka "Community") Team Registration. Once your team is registered, your team captain will receive instructions allowing them to easily invite individual team members to join their team.  If you haven't heard from your captain and need help joining your team contact us.
  • Spectators attend for free and do not need to register.
  • CLUB teams are existing, experienced dragon boat teams that practice regularly and compete against other Club teams. These include Cancer Survivor teams (BCS, ACS). Entry Fee: $1000
  • CHALLENGE teams are groups that organize in advance for a day of fun, community support, and competition against other Challenge teams from the community at this festival. Entry Fee: $2,000
  • CLUB teams: this is an ERDBA qualifying event for the Regional Championship.
  • The Springfield Dragon Boat Festival is a rain or shine event but may be subject to delays in the case of extreme weather.
  • We love dogs, but ask that they stay home for this event

Organizer Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club

Organizer of Springfield Dragon Boat Festival 2021

Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club (PVRC) offers a range of programs for youth and adults, all of which focus on the mind, body, and spirit. We recognize that our programs not only have the power of connecting a community to the river, but they can also connect community members to one another. Whether our members are looking to train with a team or experience the serenity and solitude of the river, when they join PVRC they become part of our community.
