Because the health and wellbeing of our community are of the utmost importance and our top priority, we will be postponing the Dragon Boat Upstate festival to Saturday, September 12, 2020. For our football fans, we recognize the new date is in the midst of college football season and plan to have televisions available so you won’t miss a play while fighting cancer and participating in a true tailgating experience.
We remain excited to host you later this year and will be updating the website with more information as we adapt to COVID-19.
Thank you to all for your continued support and understanding. As we have all witnessed in the last few days, great things happen when the community comes together, and we are confident the Dragon Boat Upstate Festival will remain and track along as it has in past years.
Your voice matters, and we care about your feedback and questions. Please reach out to Jim Kaltenbach at for any questions or comments.
