LAKE BEMIDJI DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL

Races are held the first Saturday in August every year!

IT'S ON!!! August 4th - 7th 2021

Plan to join us each year for the Annual Lake Bemidji Dragon Boat Festival  featuring four days of fun for the entire family. After all, it’s not just about Dragon Boat racing: festival activities include great food, music, kid’s activities, a parade of teams, cultural performances, camaraderie and much more all along the shores of beautiful Lake Bemidji. Dragon Boat racing is fun, fast-paced and engaging for spectators. It’s currently the fastest growing water sport in the nation! Between racers, family, friends, volunteers and spectators, we again anticipate thousands of people at the Lake Bemidji waterfront during the course of the event.

NEWEST CLUB PROJECT:
IT'S ANOTHER PLAYGROUND!!!
 
North Country Park will be home to a new natural 'playscape.' It's described it as a natural playground created with native plants, hills and trees to provide a connection to nature for children. The new playground would fit in with the park at 1001 30th St., as it's already home to an outdoor classroom and butterfly gardens. We will assist in design, development and public engagement with the project. As part of the agreement, our club has agreed to raise $30,000 for the project. The city's commitment is up to amount of $50,000. The plan is for design work to take place this winter with construction to follow in summer 2021.
