Pensacola Dragon Boat Festival

Date: Saturday, September 12
Time: 08:00 AM - 05:00 PM
Where: Bayview Park

Rally your coworkers, friends and family, and join us for Pensacola's 2nd 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 September 12, 2015, 30 teams supported by thousands of spectators will compete in Bayou Texar just off Bayview Park in Downtown Pensacola for the second annual Pensacola Dragonboat Race and Festival. In three years the goal is to have the Festival grow to 70 teams and draw up to 10,000 spectators to the Park. We hope to make the Pensacola Dragonboat Races & Festival the largest outdoor event in the city of Pensacola.

The Festival will begin at 8 AM, with the races beginning at 9 AM. Each race will be about 12 minutes apart with a break for lunch. Closing ceremonies will begin at about 5 PM. During the day, DJ Gus will play music keep everyone up to date on race stats. Coastal Fire will provide live entertainment throughout the day. Also, a children's festival and vendor fair will be going on throughout the entire day!
