About the Event

The DFW DragonBoat, Kite, and Lantern festival showcases and celebrates a multitude of multicultural art and sports to celebrate the Asian-American heritage. The day-long festival features riveting dragon boat races, kite and lantern making, music and dance, food and many more. The area will have food and drinks provided from local small businesses and vendors.

The Dragon Boat Race is a traditional Chinese water sport that has gained popularity worldwide, including in Dallas. Teams of paddlers, typically consisting of 20 members, race in long, narrow boats decorated to resemble dragons. The goal is to paddle in sync to reach the finish line as quickly as possible.
