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 hosting our 16th Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival at the Burlington Waterfront in 2022. 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 2022.

Our Sisters at Heart Celebration is a special day for breast cancer survivor dragon boat teams being held on August 6, 2022. We are planning a new selection of activities and videos to bring together an international community of breast cancer survivor dragon boat enthusiasts. Learn more here.
