Dragon Boats

Next summer our region has one more must-attend event added to the busy line-up of great festivals. City of Sparks, Immunize Nevada and GWN Events have announced that the Northern Nevada International Dragon Boat Festival will be held on Saturday August 19, 2017 at Sparks Marina!

We are happy to announce that Immunize Nevada has been picked as the event's local fundraising partner, meaning we will help produce the event by providing teams and volunteers.

Dragon boat racing is made up of up to 20 members in a boat with a steer and a drummer. The most common distance is 500m, with top teams competing at a 2:30-3:00 minute range pace. Registration, which is now open, runs from $745-$1,045 with discounts for early sign ups. The cost includes spots for 20 paddlers and drummer, the boat, life vests, paddles and pre-event coaching.

Sponsorships and vendor booths are available and will help make this exciting event happen. Visit the Northern Nevada International Dragon Boat Festival page for more information on the event.
