The Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival just wouldn’t happen without our generous sponsors. In return we provide your company with great opportunities to get your name out to the thousands of paddlers and spectators who participate in the Festival. We have sponsorship levels ranging from $250 on up to $20,000 or more. Some levels include discounted rates for your company to enter a team in the Festival and get even more value for your contribution.

If your passion connects most closely to breast cancer survivors, please consider opportunities to sponsor the 2019 Sister’s at Heart Celebration: A special day of paddling, camaraderie and celebration of sisterhood for breast cancer survivor dragon boat teams from the US and Canada.
