Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival Description

Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival - Festival | Outdoor Event in Boston.

The Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival is an annual event that’s held along the banks of – and in – the Charles River during June where 30 to 40 teams from the United States and Canada compete down 500 meters of the muddy river in Hong Kong-style dragon boats.

As a commemorative celebration of ancient Chinese poet-patriot Qu Yuan, the festival also showcases performances from various Asian cultures on the second day, which features an abundance of Asian food and plenty of arts and crafts on display in the fashion of ancient Chinese traditions.

Furthermore, the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival hosts an annual banquet after the opening day of races for the teams as well as any festivalgoers who wish to join. If not on a team, participants will have to purchase a table for 10 guests at $350 per table from the event website. The banquet is a 10-course dinner.

Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood and the event is MBTA accessible via the Red and Green lines.
