About the Festival

The Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival is a community dragon boat festival held on beautiful Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont. In addition to providing an opportunity for team-based fun on the waterfront, the Festival is a charity event, raising money to support cancer survivors in our local community.

We are looking forward to our 15th Anniversary Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival at the Burlington Waterfront in 2021. We will have a somewhat modified format post Covid. This year we will be paddling with 10 paddlers and a drummer to allow for extra spacing in the boats. We still think the Festival is the “most fun you will have on the lake” event! We hope to share our exciting sport by presenting a fun-filled festival for all ages that inspires our local community to support the missions of Dragonheart Vermont and our Pledge Partner for 2021, the Cancer Patient Support Foundation.

Our 2021 Sisters at Heart Celebration will be held virtually, recognizing the health and travel challenges that affect this special event. We are looking forward to again offering virtual events to engage our breast cancer survivor community across the country, the continent, and the globe! Learn more here.
