THE 12TH ANNUAL LAKE BEMIDJI DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL

Plan to join us for the 12th Annual Lake Bemidji Dragon Boat Festival featuring four days of fun for the entire family. After all, it’s not just about Dragon Boat racing: festival activities include great food, music, kid’s activities, a parade of teams, cultural performances, camaraderie and much more all along the shores of beautiful Lake Bemidji. Dragon Boat racing is fun, fast-paced and engaging for spectators. It’s currently the fastest growing water sport in the nation! Between racers, family, friends, volunteers and spectators, we again anticipate thousands of people at the Lake Bemidji waterfront during the course of the event. Register your team by May 1st and save $100.
