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.

14th annual Dragon Boat Upstate Festival

#AllinforAshley Warriors

Hey Guys!  Welcome to my Dragon Boat Festival page.  I'm Ashley, a current survivor of Cholangiocarcinoma. Diagnosed in March of 2019, I've battled this very rare and aggressive cancer for almost a year. In April of 2019, I underwent the Whipple surgery to remove the cancerous tumor in my bile duct within my pancreas. From May to November of 2019, I went through chemotherapy to rid any surviving cancer cells left within my body. Today I'm doing well, am NED (No Evidence of Disease) and so supported by the Greenville cancer community and I want to give back. I've organized this #AllinforAshley dragonboat to raise money for future cancer patients in Grenville and to celebrate my fight on September 12th. 

By making a donation in support of my Dragon Boat team, you help provide vital cancer research and survivorship programs to cancer patients in our community.  Make a gift to my Dragon Boat team and know that you are making a difference to cancer patients right here in the Upstate.

Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to celebrating with you!
