Welcome to our 3rd annual San Diego Dragon Boat Festival, co-sponsored by SD Alliance for APIAs and SD Dragon Boat Team!

Dragon boat racing in October? Traditionally celebrated on duanwujie, the 5th day of the 5th month in the lunar calendar, dragon boat racing has become an international sport with racing schedules that span the seasons. Our festival is held at the end of San Diego Dragon Boat Team?s racing season - an untraditional date, yet like races worldwide, still rooted in Chinese tradition.

So come on down to the San Diego Dragon Boat Festival on Saturday, October 20, 9am to 5 pm, at Playa Pacifica (north of the Hilton) in Mission Bay Park, and
- experience the pageantry and ritual of the 2000-year-old traditions of dragon boat racing,
- celebrate the diversity and richness of the cultural heritage of San Diego's Asian Pacific Islander communities
- enjoy a day in San Diego?s great Mission Bay Park, where land meets water
- be part of a greater community ? San Diego, still America?s finest city!

The festival is free and open to the public. Fees for 16-paddler dragon boat teams are $640 with 16 t-shirts ($40/person) and $500 without t-shirts. Fees for high school and college student teams (at least 9 full-time students) are $320 without t-shirts, $460 with 16 t-shirts; IDs required.
