Dragon Boat Festival
The Dragon Boat Festival is back for 2017!
Saturday 9 September 2017
Dragon boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and the fastest growing water activity in Britain today - as well as the most fun!
Up to 10 people paddle each 30’ boat with a drummer at the front beating time and a helm at the tail steering a straight course.
The Festival is open to everyone and over 40 crews are expected to battle it out over the 200m race course, watched by several hundred spectators.
The Ditton Meadows location offers a superb venue for racing and a fabulous day is guaranteed with plenty of bankside family entertainment including funfair rides, children’s activities, inflatables and Chinese lion dancing plus bar and food stalls.
Gable Events has joined with Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT), to bring you the twelfth charity dragon boat festival to be staged on the River Cam in Cambridge.
‘Make a splash and enter the Cambridge Dragon Boat Festival today!’
No previous experience is required, just plenty of team spirit!
