Dragon Marketplace

Food Trucks, Merchants or Not-for-Profit Organizations are welcome…

The Calgary Dragon Boat Festival is one of Calgary’s premiere sporting events and family-friendly festivals. Taking place at North Glenmore Park, the event will draw over an estimated 1,250 competitors and 3,000 spectators.

The festival is an exciting mix of dragon boat racing, cultural celebrations featuring a main stage of entertainment, beer garden, retail merchants and food area. The Calgary Dragon Boat Festival strives to create an unforgettable experience while promoting teamwork and inspiration.

The festival continues to grow year after year. We are looking for food and retail vendors to assist with making our weekend exciting and memorable by offering quality food, services and products to our participants and spectators.
