With free admission, families are welcome to join us at the water for festivities, music, food, entertainment, and a day of dragon boat racing!
The Colorado Springs International Dragon Boat Festival returns to Prospect Lake!
This event brings together culture, sport, and international flavors that blend a 2,500-year-old tradition with the fun and excitement of an outdoor festival.
Twenty paddlers move in unison, combining strength and teamwork in a boat whose elaborate design originates from ancient China. Social groups and businesses alike embrace the sport because it builds camaraderie, forms connections and promotes healthy lifestyles.
Admission to this family-friendly event is free; races will begin at 9 a.m. and will continue throughout the day. Festival grounds will offer a variety of activities for all participants and spectators.
Wander through the Health & Wellness Village featuring exciting products and services to assist in leading a healthy lifestyle. Grab a bite from one of our food trucks, enjoy watching the races in the beer garden, or shop in the marketplace.
