The Kelowna Dragon Boat Festival is a premier summer dragon boat festival that takes place annually in Kelowna, BC. The Breast Cancer Challenge Race and Carnation Ceremony pays tribute to the origins of modern dragon boat racing and demonstrates the life-altering aspect of the sport of dragon boating. With the Carnation Ceremony, we remember those currently in treatment and those who no longer paddle but are still with us in spirit. Also includes 200m sprints, 500m races, 800m guts and glory, blindfold race, Taiko drummers, vendors, a beer garden, and a nautical paddler party.
