Cheer the Marin Dragons
The 23rd Annual Northern California International Dragon Boat Festival returns on Saturday & Sunday, September 15 & 16 from 10 am- 5 pm each day at Oakland’s beautiful Lake Merritt, the 3rd year at its new location. Presented by the California Dragon Boat Association, audiences will be treated to the spectacular fleet of colorful 40-foot dragon boats as they race to the beat of Chinese drums.
Cheer our very own Marin Dragons team on Saturday, September 15. Look for our big red tents at the Paddler's Village.
This two-day, admission-free festival brings a weekend of world-class dragon boat racing, spectacular cultural performances, delicious food at our marketplace and of course kid-friendly activities in Dragon Land where games, arts & crafts and sports await.
