Lake Hernando Dragon Boat Festival

November 6, 2021 @ 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Our event includes local and regional teams coming together to race against each other in a series of heats in 11- or 21-person boats. We are partnering with PanAm Dragon Boat out of Tampa this year.

The weekend begins with a kick-off party Friday evening at "The Lodge on the Lake, with a Million Dollar View" - musical entertainment to be announced. Special plans for Veterans Saturday & Sunday during the Festival.

A great team-building experience and great exercise for everyone 14 years and older. Get your business, community or school group together to race an 11 or 21 person boat! Minimum 3 races planned (Mother Nature permitting). The site features an Arts and Crafts/Commercial Village, live music, a dragon drum and dance group, a food and drink court and a kids’ play area. Lots of fun for the Whole Family!

Novice teams are provided with instruction and all of the necessary equipment to race. Included in your team registration is a practice session where we will show you how to paddle and race. All the necessary equipment, including the boat, paddles, life vests, a drum, and a professional steersman/coach is included for your practice session and for your races on the day of the event.
