Announcing the dates for the 2021 Penticton Dragon Boat Festival
The 20th annual Penticton Dragon Boat Festival (Version 2.0) will be held on September 11 & 12, 2021.
Held over two days on the second weekend in September, the racing happens on Skaha Lake in beautiful, sunny, Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. The event also features a beverage garden, a wide range of vendors, lots of great food and over 2,500 athletes. This event will be a regional qualifier for Dragon Boat Canada Nationals.
The event consists of two 500 m qualifying heats on Saturday, followed by semis Sunday morning, and finals Sunday afternoon.
The event features a beverage garden with proceeds going to Survivorship – The South Okanagan’s Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat Team, with plenty of food vendors, entertainment, and a marketplace. Plus the best festival site in BC — a sandy beach and a race that’s visible for the entire 500 m course — and a large grassy area under the trees for team tents.
Venue: Penticton Paddling Centre
