Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival – Superior, WI

Aug 21, 2022 | events/locations, evergreen

Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival

The first Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival took place in 2002 after a year’s worth of hard work and preparations by dedicated Twin Ports Rotarians. In our first year, we had over 70 teams and had such a good time we just had to do it again…and we’ve been doing just that ever since!

THE RACE LOCATION

On August 26th & 27th located at the head of Lake Superior, this 400-meter race is a straight course that takes place in the Superior Bay off of Barkers Island. The water between the island and the mainland provides an ideal venue for the race, and historic Barker’s Island is a terrific staging area for not only the race but is also a recreational park for local residents.

There is ample space for spectators and all the activities associated with the festival. Many teams erect tents for the weekend, socialize, nap and celebrate on the island. Race heats take place completely in view across the island and happen in quick succession. The event is family friendly, has no admission fee for spectators, and is tons of fun!

Spectators are welcome to partake in the festival at no charge!
