 Friday, July 4 to Sunday, July 6, 2014 – 12th Annual Dragon Boat Festival – 7 to 10 pm at Maffeo Sutton Park, 10 Comox Road, Nanaimo, BC 

It’s wet, it’s wild, and it’s a weekend full of fun for the whole family! At Maffeo Sutton Park from Friday July 4 to Sunday July 6 is Save on Foods’ 12th Annual Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival. This year promises once again to be the biggest and best ever, with more activities, more teams racing, and more to celebrate at this popular Nanaimo event.

Dragon boat racing is one of the most amazing sports you will ever get to witness so take the time to come down and cheer on the 70+ racing teams. Then stay for the pancake breakfast, Farmer’s Market, candle ceremony, beer gardens, and more. Best of all, it’s free admission for the general public!

The Save-On-Foods Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival began in 2003 with 20 registered teams, and has grown into a premier event with over 70 teams participating, all for the sake of raising money to fight cancer locally.
