Nevada Dragon Boat Festival

 

Welcome to our 4th Annual 
Nevada International Dragon Boat
Festival on May 18-19, 2019

N

Join us for a two–day event
of spirited competition
on Lake Las Vegas

Its old-world Mediterranean theme is reflected in the overall design and ambiance of this charming destination and also very unique to the desert southwest. This spectacular water-side resort destination will be sure to make you feel like you're at a desert paradise but really only minutes away from the famed Las Vegas Strip. Escape to Lake Las Vegas and leave your stress and worries behind.  The shops, restaurants, and nightlife are a short stroll if you choose to stay in the village, providing race attendees the opportunity to intimately experience one of Las Vegas’ hidden treasures.

The event kicks off Saturday morning with a team captain's meeting.  Races will begin right after the Lion's Dance, with excitement throughout the day.  Witness our "Vegas Gold"  2K Exhibition Race as part of the fun festivities. Spend your evening at the strip for some of the finest dining and ultimate entertainment. The race action will resume on Sunday morning with qualifying rounds and championship races.  The days will conclude with an awards and medals ceremony. (Please note that awards are given for specific categories.)
