Greetings Dragon Boat Teams and Fans!
The 8th annual Springfield Dragon Boat Festival is coming! The festival is one day of fun, food, Asian-themed entertainment, vendors, community support, and competition at Springfield's North Riverfront Park. This family-friendly day features races between dragon boats (20-person canoes with dragon heads and tails) on the Connecticut River starting at 8 am. You can watch the racing or compete by organizing a team of your own! Spectators attend for free. Please consider walking or riding your bike - we are right on the Connecticut Riverwalk and Bikeway.
