The Dragon Boat Upstate Festival was a tremendous success! With full hearts and full dragon boats, it was a year we will always remember. All thanks to YOU! We all came together in person again (finally!) to paddle fiercely for a cause near and dear to our hearts.
See you next year
We are already counting down the days until we will all be back on the water next year for Dragon Boat 2023. Mark your calendars for the 17th annual Dragon Boat Festival on Saturday, May 6, 2023! In the meantime, from our family to yours, we wish you health and happiness.
We are Paddling Fiercely Against Cancer
Why We Paddle
Every Dragon Boat paddler participates in the festival for different reasons, but we are all paddling fiercely against cancer. Unfortunately, we have all been touched by cancer, and Dragon Boat Upstate Festivals offers an opportunity for us to honor or memorialize a loved one in a unique and special way. Learn more about how the funds raised for Dragon Boat make a difference in the lives of many cancer patients and their families each day.

Our dedicated Dragon Boat Hall of Fame members share a common goal: to help eradicate cancer. And they embody the spirit of the event teamwork, perseverance, and a shared passion to raise money to fight cancer right here at home.
