2019 World Beat Festival DRAGON BOAT Races
June 29, 2019

World Beat Dragon Boat Race Details and Registration
2019 REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED


2019 was a success! Please refer to the bottom of this page for race results.

We are returning to the basics – 20 paddler boats and a 500 meter race course. Depending on the number of entrants, we might have at least one 250meter heat. Our goal is to have two qualifying heats, semi-finals and finals. 

As always, the river will be a part of your race challenge. Community Teams will race a 250meter course.

Only have half a boat of paddlers?

We can help match your team with another team in the same boat. (no laughing)

Before registering, contact us at dragon@salemmulticultural.org

We look forward to seeing you all in June. Paddles up!
