Annual Heart Lake Dragon Boat Festival - Saturday, September 17, 2016

2016 Registration

The Heart Lake Dragonboat Festival will be held on Saturday September 17, 2016 beginning at 9:00 a.m. This is no sedate country picnic - it's a loud, boisterous celebration! Teams of 20 people working in sync with each other, paddling toward a common goal - the ultimate team building experience! No experience is required!!

Whether teams are first or last, the result is always the same: fun on the water! Not solely about strength but technique, the exhilarating rush of paddling to the beat of a drum is like no other.

The event is organized by Toronto and Region Conservation and the Etobicoke-Mimico Watersheds Coalition, along with the support of watershed supporters.
