The Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival Society is a dedicated group of individuals who work year-round to present paddlers and spectators alike with the best event possible. We bring together and gives back to our diverse community through team building, charitable fund raising and a cross cultural experience that is fun for everyone. Our Festival is three days of intense competition and an amazing camaraderie.
Our mission is “To provide the premiere dragon boat destination, a good spirit, a competitive camaraderie and an enjoyable time in the celebration of life.”
The Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival Society donates the net proceeds to the Nanaimo Hospital Foundation and Nanaimo Hospice House. Since 2003, the society has donated over $600,000 to assist in improving the diagnostic and treatment process of breast cancer patients.Visit Website
