Coming to Sylvan Lake on February 10 & 11, the Festival will be a hub of excitement, bringing in competitors from far and wide. Dragon Boats will thrill visitors to Sylvan Lake by racing across the frozen surface of our massive lake skating rink!
Boats are equipped with skate-like blades and racers propel themselves along the 200-meter racecourse using spiked ice-picks, to the audience’s excitement.
Practices take place on Friday afternoon. On Saturday, teams will compete in the first annual Sylvan Lake Ice Dragon Boat Festival.
We encourage the community to register for the festival before February 3rd to secure your spot in the event.
This is a unique opportunity for our community to come together and experience the thrill of dragon boating on the frozen lake. Don’t miss out on this incredible event, register now and let’s make this the best Ice Dragon Boat Festival yet!
Mark your calendars for the most exciting event of the year! The Calgary Dragon Boat Race and Festival is back on August 11th, 12th and 13th, 2023. Assemble your team and register starting February 1st to ensure your spot in the competition.
