Join thousands of spectators along the Buffalo Bayou for the 16th Annual Houston Dragon Boat Festival for an unforgettable day of activities on the water. This year's event will feature more than 30 corporate and community teams racing down the waters of Houston to celebrate Asian and Asian-American culture.


You'll be able to see dozens of traditional Hong Kong style BuK Dragon Boats flying across the water and can catch live music and cultural performances all day. The event takes place May 7 and May 8, 2016, and runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Dragon boat racing is the fastest growing water sport in the world and races take place all over the country. Save the date for the competition and festivities happening in Downtown Houston as we head into summer! Admission is free and you'll find plenty of food and beverage vendors around the water all weekend long. New races will start every 15 to 20 minutes so be sure to get there early to cheer on your favorite team.
