The Sarasota Dragon Boat Festival comes to Nathan Benderson Park,
Sarasota, Florida on Saturday, April 21st, 2018, 8:45am-4pm. This
event brings together culture, sport and international flavors that blend a
2,500-year-old tradition with the fun and excitement of an outdoor festival.


Twenty paddlers move in unison, combining strength and teamwork in a
boat whose elaborate design originates from ancient China. Social groups and
businesses alike embrace the sport because it builds camaraderie, forms
connections and promotes healthy lifestyles.


Admission to the event is free; races will begin at 8:45am and will
continue throughout the day. Festival grounds will offer a variety of
activities for all participants and spectators. Wander through the Health &
Wellness Village featuring exciting products and services to assist in leading
a healthy lifestyle. Grab a bite from one of our Food Trucks, enjoy watching
the races in the Beer Garden, or shop in the Marketplace. Families can bring
their children to enjoy games and activities in the interactive Kids Zone

New teams and individuals are welcome! Invite friends, family,
colleagues - form a group of 17-21 people and sign-up a team today. If you or a
