Dragon Boat

The Dragons Are Coming!

The Gilda's Club South Jersey Dragon Boat Festival 2018

Saturday July 14th, 2018

Donate to Our Festival Page!

The Festival will be a day of Dragon Boat races, a flower ceremony for loved ones touched by cancer, live entertainment, fantastic local food, vendors, and fun for the whole family!

Dragon Boating is easy to learn, extremely safe, and an activity where men and women compete side-by-side towards the same goal. Regardless of how young, old, big, or little: once a paddler is in stroke, they are contributing to their team! Add the outdoors, the water, the visual spectacle of dragon boating and you get a perfect activity for friends and family, corporate team building, or a school outing!

Absolutely no experience is necessary to participate and we provide the boats, paddles, life jackets, and race course! We recommend about 21-24 participants per team, with a minimum of 8 female paddlers in the boat for every race. The minimum age to paddle is 12 years old.

In addition to competitive race awards, prizes will be awarded for most team spirit, best team costumes, best decorated team tent, most money raised by a team, and most money raised by an individual.

The Dragon Boat Festival benefits Gilda's Club South Jersey's free programs for men, women, teens, and children impacted by cancer.
