THE DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL
The 2019 Worcester Dragon Boat Festival is back and better than ever! This family-friendly event includes dragon boat races, cultural performances, vendors, food, music, activities and more at DCR Regatta Point and Lake Quinsigamond on September 21. This annual festival is an opportunity to celebrate the diverse cultures in Worcester County and come together as a community to enjoy all the festival has to offer. Last year's event brought the community and 40 teams together to experience Worcester's very own, Dragon Boat Festival. Dragon boat racing is great for businesses looking for team building exercises, family, friends and community groups looking for a good time! Thank you to our sponsors and partners: Fallon Health, Discover Central Mass, The Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, Atlas Distributing, Coghlin Companies and the Worcester Railers HC. Portion of proceeds will benefit the United Way of Central Mass.
