Festival Access Information – Detours
August 11- 13, 2023
As a great deal of our regular paddlers are aware, there has been bridge rehabilitation work happening on the Crowchild Bridge over Glenmore.
As of July 31st, The City of Calgary chose the weekend of the festival to completely close the bridge to vehicle traffic in addition to westbound traffic on Glenmore.
The map below indicates the detour required to access the festival via 37th Street by the Grey Eagle Casino.

As Calgary’s premier water sport festival, the Calgary Dragon Boat Race & Festival draws +1850 competitors, +4000 spectators and an abundance of excitement and cultural experiences. Every year, the Calgary Dragon Boat Society (CDBS) organizes Dragon Boat Race & Festival at North Glenmore Park to showcase culture and dragon boat racing in a family-friendly environment.
The Calgary Dragon Boat Society will enter the 31th year of Dragon Boating in the community and today is one of Calgary’s “best family friendly outdoor festivals around”!!!
Photos speak a thousand words, but videos will speak more than a thousand words and will show you the raw emotion of the comradery, sportsmanship, dedication, team spirit, and why Dragon Boating is so attractive.
The Calgary Dragon Boat Race & Festival is geared towards creating an unforgettable experience. The dragon boat competition illustrates comradery, teamwork and inspiration. Stemmed by a 2000-year-old Chinese legend, Dragon Boat Racing is still very active and remains a tradition to this day.
