Held in Wellington over the Summer Festival Season we have 2 race days where the gloves can come off and team can compete against each other on the water.

The first being the Harbour Fun Day.  This is a fun race will be held on the 20th of February 2020 to give competitors a taste of what’s to come.

The second is the Wellington Dragon Boat Festival.

  • On Saturday 6th March 2021 it’s adults racing – 300m
  • On Sunday 7th March 2021 it’s youths racing – 300m

During the weekend over 40 adult teams and more than 30 schools from all over Aotearoa and Australia will race to determine the champions.  With social and championship grades many of the teams will walk away with medals, trophies, and prizes.  The atmosphere will be white hot with over 10,000 spectators cheering on the pumped up competitors.

The determination to make the Festival a free event for spectators continues with this competition backed by a resolve to ensure Wellington has a Dragon Boat Festival to be proud of.
Dragon Boat racing is a dynamic and interesting sport which has survived the rise and fall of many corporate team building activities.  As well as being a great team building activity and good fitness program the Wellington Festival puts a big emphasis on adding value to a good time.
