35th Annual Toronto International Dragon Boat Race Festival

Toronto Chinese Business Association in collaboration with GWN Dragon Boat is proud to present the 35th Annual Living Realty Toronto International Dragon Boat Race Festival.

On June 17th & 18th, 2023, over 100 dragon boat crews from across North America and overseas will arrive at the Toronto Island. This event proudly supports the Scarborough Health Network Foundation.

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 9:00am and will continue throughout each day. Festival grounds will offer a variety of activities for all participants and spectators. Families can bring their children to enjoy the Chinese Cultural Village and live performances. Grab a bite from one of our Food Vendors while wandering through the Health & Wellness Zone featuring exciting local products and services to assist in leading a healthy lifestyle. For all your shopping needs, stop by the Artisan Village and Marketplace.
