“The Spirit of the Dragon – Paddles Rise Up!”
Bringing Communities Together Through Dragon Boating
We are proud to be Victoria’s flagship Dragon Boat Festival, established in 1995.
Arts & Culture Festival
The Victoria Dragon Boat Festival celebrates both its strong historic ties to Chinese-Canadian culture, as well as the cultural diversity that has grown over the years within our localities.
Through the years, the Festival has also encapsulated other integral cultural aspects, including the important presence of First Nations People, whose lands the Festival takes place on. Our featured entertainers encompass these populations, as well as other ethnicities such as Latin Americans, Africans, and other Asian nations.
