September 10 and 11, 2022. Welcome to the Penticton Dragon Boat Festival. Held over two days on the second weekend in September, the racing happens on Skaha Lake in beautiful, sunny, Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. Our event may look a little different this year, but we are committed to offering paddlers a well-run event with fair, fun and competitive racing.

June 10 and/or 11, 2022. The Okanagan Super Sprints are fast, fun 250 m sprints on Skaha Lake in Penticton. This event offers head-to-head racing over a shorter distance, allowing teams to practice all their race-specific tactics.
