The Boston Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival is the first dragon boat festival in the United States.  It started in 1979 and sparked the growth of the sport.  Today, there are over hundreds of teams and competitions all over the country.  It is one of the fastest growing sports in the nation.

The mission of the Festival is to provide a common setting through which people, of diverse backgrounds, can cross cultural boundaries.  We aim to activate Boston's waterways and give residents and visitors a venue to enjoy water sports in the spirit of community and competition.
