Dragon Boat Festival

Dragon Boat Festival


The date for next year's Bradford Dragon Boat Festival has been set for Friday 22nd June, Saturday 23rd June and Sunday 24th June 2018.

Friday will be a dedicated day for schools whilst the weekend will see teams from across the region converge once again on Roberts Park to “Race the Dragon” on the River Aire raising money for charity and helping to make a difference to so many lives.

The Bradford Dragonboat Festival is proud to support the Bradford Lord Mayor's Appeal as the main event and teams racing on Friday and Saturday must raise money for this charity. In the spirit of Bradford's generous and loving nature, the Bradford Dragonboat Festival is also opening up its doors on the Sunday to supporting other charities through its multi charity event. The only requirement is that any chosen charity, (other than the Lord Mayor's Appeal), nominated by a business/organisation as the beneficiary of their team's sponsorship must be registered with the Charities Commission.

The event promises to be a fun filled family festival with dragon boat racing on the river and landside attractions for all to enjoy including children’s entertainment, charity stalls, catering stands, landside games, bar, live acts and much, much more. ?

So get together with your colleagues, friends and family for a fantastic day out and let’s Race the Dragon!
