Dragon Boat Festival 2019


Rally your coworkers, friends and family, and join us for Pensacola’s 6th Annual spectacle on water – dragon boating! Led by the rhythmic beat of a drum, teams of 20 synchronized paddlers, one drummer and one steersperson race 300 meters up the river in 40-foot canoes rigged with decorative Chinese dragon heads and tails. The sport brings social groups and businesses alike down to the water to bond and compete, building a stronger sense of “team” with every stroke. From vets to newbies, anyone can have a good time – we’ve made sure there’s plenty of time to kick back (or thrown down!) between races.

On October 12th, 2019, teams supported by thousands of spectators will compete in Bayou Texar just off Bayview Park in Downtown Pensacola for the sixth annual Pensacola Dragon Boat Festival.

The Pensacola Dragon Boat Festival works to benefit Gulf Coast Kids’ House and Junior Achievement of Northwest Florida. CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS
